WARNING
Review CAP2 to determine whether any applications are in received or renewal status before reverting the case to open. The supervisor must delete the application on DECA before making administrative corrections to the case. Document the case file with the actions and reasons for deleting the application.
Complete the eligibility determination the same day a case is reopened. This prevents AZTECS from listing the programs on a management report as overdue, depending on the reopened month.
 
Cases must be administratively reopened as soon as the error in the eligibility determination is discovered. An application and interview is not required. (See Reopening Procedures)
 
EXCEPTION
When a case was closed or denied more than 12 months in the past, the following apply:
The supervisor must contact the Policy Support Team (PST) via e‑mail. The supervisor must ensure the case is ready to work prior to sending the e-mail. The e-mail must include the reason for reverting the case to open.
The PST reviews the request contacts the FAA office for further instructions.
