.01 Imposing A New CA Sanction
 
(01/01/17 – 12/31/17)
To impose a new CA graduated sanction, a noncompliance notification must have occurred.
 
For additional information, see one or more of the following:
 
 
NOTE For graduated sanctions, when there has been no compliance between sanctions, AZTECS generates the CA DEAUTH - GRAD SANC ACTS alert at rollover. (See Imposing Ongoing CA Sanction)
 
When FAA receives a Sanction: Noncompliance/Compliance Request email from DCSS, complete the following:
 
Key the DCSS Sanction Reason Code in the RSN CODE field on DISA for the correct sanction month, allowing for NOAA.
Key the DCSS Sanction Reason Sub Code in the corresponding SUB RSN field on DISA.
Send the NOAA for the correct sanction level. The sanction level on the NOAA must match the sanction level that was imposed on PRAP/DISA.
 
When the participant is in DCSS noncompliance with more than one absent parent, document the case file(g) and the DISA (PAGE 2) screen.
 
WARNING
Do not key the NC DCSS Cooperation Code in the AF COOPERATION CODE field on APPD when a CA participant does not cooperate with DCSS. (See Cooperation with DCSS)
 
When a Jobs noncompliance ACTS alert is received, complete the following:
 
Review NOHS to verify that an NOAA was sent by Jobs to the PI.
 
WARNING
DO NOT impose the sanction when any of the following occur:
NOAA was not mailed
NOAA states the incorrect sanction level
NOAA states the incorrect sanction month
Contact the Jobs case worker for a resolution.
 
Review sanction history on PRAP and DISA.
Key the Sanction Reason Code in the RSN CODE field on DISA.
 
When FAA is notified that a CA participant voluntarily quits working without good cause, complete the following:
 
Key the Voluntary Quit Sanction Reason Code VQ in the corresponding RSN CODE field on DISA.
Key the date the sanction will be imposed in the BEGIN field on DISA.
Key the date the sanction will end in the END field on DISA.
Send the NOAA for the correct sanction level. The sanction level on the NOAA must match the sanction level that was imposed on PRAP/DISA.
 
When FAA verifies that a CA participant has been convicted of using, selling, or possessing a controlled substance, complete the following:
 
Key the Drug Conviction Sanction Reason Code DR in the corresponding RSN CODE field on DISA.
Key the date the sanction will be imposed in the BEGIN field on DISA.
Send the NOAA for the correct sanction level. The sanction level on the NOAA must match the sanction level that was imposed on PRAP/DISA.
 
When DISA is correctly keyed, AZTECS calculates and displays the correct graduated sanction number in the NBR field. Complete the following:
 
Process the case through AFPD to authorize reduced benefits.
Proceed to FSAD to authorize NA, as appropriate.
 
NOTE See SA Income for the sanction effect on NA.
 
Consider the following when imposing CA sanctions:
 
Impose the sanction for the correct month as stated in the NOAA sent by Jobs or FAA.
Consider multiple sanctions that affect the same benefit month as one sanction month. (See CA Cumulative Sanctions)
 
When a sanction has been imposed and the participant has not complied by the AZTECS monthly rollover date, AZTECS deauthorizes the CA case and generates the CA DEAUTH - GRAD SANC ACTS alert. (See Imposing Ongoing CA Sanction)
