The BSAS maintains a list of the names and Social Security Numbers (SSNs) of all treatment
group beneficiaries randomly assigned to the BOND project. These beneficiaries are
eligible to receive the $1 for $2 offset. In addition, the BSAS accepts a nightly
file from Abt’s processing system (BODS) that contains earnings estimates for the
beneficiaries who are eligible for the $1 for $2 offset.
The BSAS processes the earnings estimate and automatically creates a MACADE action
to adjust the monthly benefit and generate a notice to the beneficiary. If the BSAS
cannot generate the Manual Adjustment Credit and Award Data Entry (MACADE) action,
a Manual Adjustment, Credit and Award Processing (MADCAP exception, or processing
limitation results, L5R or Office of Central Operations (OCO) receives and develops
the edit to completion and updates the BSAS with the corrected information.
If a MADCAP exception results from the MACADE action, OCO resolves the exception and
updates the BSAS with the corrected information. OCO established this centralized
unit to work the processing limitations generated when BSAS cannot automate the MACADE
action and works MADCAP exceptions because L5R does not have access to paperless processing.
If an FO encounters an unworked case, send an MDW to L5R.
