The purpose of this Chief Judge Bulletin (CJB) is to clarify where expert resumes should be placed in the claim(s) file. This CJB supersedes all prior instruction on this topic, and that included in HALLEX I-2-1-15, I-2-1-30, and I-2-1-31, and Hearing Level eBP section 4.3(E).

As noted in a 2015 Chief Judge memorandum, resumes for vocational experts (VEs) and medical experts (MEs) upload to the E and F sections, respectively. Therefore, in accordance with upcoming HALLEX and eBP updates:

    · Add VE resumes or qualifications to Part E of the claim(s) folder (“Disability Related Development and Documentation”);

    · Add ME resumes or qualifications to Part F of the claim(s) folder (“Medical Records”).

Direct all program–related and technical questions to your RO support staff. RO support staff may refer questions or unresolved issues to their Headquarters’ contacts in my office.
