When an agreement has been reached that there may have been an IPV, the WIU investigator attempts to contact the individual to offer the Waiver of Administrative Disqualification Hearing Consent Agreement (IM-161). If the investigator is unable to reach the individual, WIU returns the FSD/WIU Investigation Tracking Sheet with the IM-161 and Withdrawal of Waiver of Administrative Disqualification Hearing Consent Agreement (IM-161A) indicating the individual was not offered the opportunity to waive the hearing.
Initiate the ADH by:
- entering Y in the ADH field on the CARS Change Claim Information (OVCC) screen
- forwarding the Advance Notice of Your Administrative Disqualification Hearing (IM-160), IM-161, IM-161A, and the FSD/WIU Investigation Tracking Sheet to the Hearing Unit
The FSD/WIU Tracking Form must state that the IM-161 was not offered because the individual could not be reached.
