Prepare a memorandum to OARO, Office of Appellate Operations (OAO) requesting reopening
of the AC decision under the rules of administrative finality in Regulations No. 16,
section 416.1487 through 416.1494. Modify the sample memoranda in SI 04030.060C., Exhibits 1-3 for this use by deleting reference to Regulations sections 416.1467
through 416.1470 in the last paragraph. This refers to own motion review by the AC
— a procedure applying to ALJ hearing decisions, not to AC decisions.
Do not send questionable AC decisions to CO for referral to OARO, OAO. Send them directly
to OARO, OAO as in the cases of questionable hearing decisions as described in SI 04030.060.
Have the FO continue tracking vacated decisions after remand (see SI 04030.060B.). Forward to the FO (or other regional effectuating component) a copy of the AC order
of remand to be maintained with the FO control folder until a new decision is rendered.
