Title:Announcement of New Tools for All ODAR Hearing Office Level Employees
Type:Chief Judge Bulletins
Program:All Programs
Link To Reference:
Retention Date: Indefinite

I am pleased to announce an exciting new tool available in PolicyNet for all of our employees. It is entitled “Chief Judge Bulletins” (CJBs) and will appear under “National Instructions,” which is on the right side of the PolicyNet homepage. CJBs are replacing Chief Judge Memos in which instructions or information is disseminated to the hearing operation field. It could include such things as workload changes, system enhancements or reminders, or serve as notification of imminent or recently approved HALLEX revisions. CJBs may also be used to issue reminder items on a wide range of topics.

All hearing operations employees will automatically receive these bulletins, when they are posted. They will not be combined with other PolicyNet issuances. If the content of the bulletin impacts another agency component, we will include that component on the distribution list for that particular announcement. All CJBs will be retained for at least six months and then available as archived documents.

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.
