Appendix VI, Decision Issuance Codes

Body

Revision 11-4; June 1, 2011

 

When the hearings officer issues a decision in TIERS, he must choose the appropriate decision from the Nature of Decision drop down box. TIERS generates reports that list and/or count the various types of decisions issued. The reports list the decision issuance code rather than spelling out the nature of decision.
