Benefit Accuracy Management (BAM) BATCH SERIES

RDA Number
1579
Effective Date
Record Series Abstract
The records in this record series are completed BAM audit case files. The Unemployment Insurance (UI) Benefit Accuracy Measurement (BAM) system (formerly Quality Control [QC]) provides the basis for assessing the accuracy of UI benefit payments. It is also a diagnostic tool for the use of Federal and State Workforce Agency (SWA) staff in identifying errors and their causes and in correcting and tracking solutions to these problems. Representative samples of UI claims including benefit payments and eligibility determinations, referred to as case files, are randomly selected and examined intensively to determine whether they were properly administered to claimants and whether these claimants were paid the proper amounts, or appropriately denied.
