The Residency Determination Service (RDS) was established in coordination with the University of North Carolina (UNC), the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS), the North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority (NCSEAA), and the North Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities (NCICU) as the centralized service for determining residency for students. This service enables a student to use one residency determination for admissions applications to multiple North Carolina public colleges and universities and to demonstrate residency for state aid programs consideration at all (public and private) North Carolina colleges and universities.
The state of North Carolina partially subsidizes the cost of North Carolina public college and university tuition for all students whose domicile, or permanent legal residence, is in North Carolina. Residency determination establishes if students should have in-state or out-of-state tuition. Because North Carolina residency status is governed solely by North Carolina statute, lack of eligibility for in-state status in another state does not guarantee in-state status in North Carolina. The residency statute mandates only those who can demonstrate a minimum of twelve months of uninterrupted domicile (legal residence) in North Carolina are eligible for in-state tuition. The statute also places the burden of proof on the student to establish, by a preponderance of evidence, that they are a bona fide domiciliary rather than mere residents of North Carolina.
MACs are Medicare contractors that develop LCDs and process Medicare claims. MACs develop an LCD when there is no national coverage determination (NCD) (e.g., when an item or service is new) or when there is a need to further define an NCD for the specific region.
iThe above dates reflect the month and year in which applications were filed (request date) or submission date of the appeal request for Redeterminations or Center Director Review. The Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) encourages employers to request a prevailing wage determination for the H-2B program at least 60 days before the date the determination is needed. For various reasons, OFLC may be completing the processing of applications filed prior to the month posted.
ii Withdrawn and voided requests are excluded from the total, which may cause the numbers for previous months to fluctuate.iii Determinations issued does not include requests for Redetermination or Center Director Reviews.iv These processing times indicate the average processing time for all prevailing wage applications received in a specific month. The processing time for each request may vary from the average depending on the material facts and individual circumstances of the case.
 Withdrawn and rejected applications are excluded from the total, which may cause these numbers to fluctuate. A complete H-2A application is defined as one containing all the documentation (e.g., housing inspection report, workers' compensation information, recruitment report) necessary for the OFLC Certifying Officer to issue a final determination 30 days before the start date of need.
The person applying for a pre-need determination must sign the form. If that person is under 18 years old, mentally unable to make decisions for themselves (sometimes called mentally incompetent), or physically unable to sign the form, a spouse, parent, or court-appointed representative may sign the form.
It will take several months to process an application and gather all of the documents needed to finalize a moral character determination. To check the status of your application, log in to your Applicant Portal.
The field office is responsible for verifying non-medical eligibility requirements, which may include age, employment, marital status or Social Security coverage information. The field office then sends the case to DDS to evaluate the disability. DDS is responsible for obtaining medical evidence and making the initial determination on whether that person, or a claimant, is disabled or blind under the law.
DDS works to obtain evidence from the claimant's own health care providers first. If that evidence is unavailable or insufficient to make a determination, DDS will arrange for a consultative examination (CE) to obtain additional information. The claimant's treatment provider is the preferred source for the CE, but DDS may obtain the CE from an independent source. Trained staff at DDS then makes the disability determination.
After a determination is made, DDS returns the case to the field office for appropriate action. If DDS finds the claimant is disabled, SSA completes any outstanding non-disability development (such as current income and resources), computes the benefit amount, and begins paying benefits to the claimant. If the claimant was found not to be disabled, the file is kept in the field office in the event of an appeal. The local SSA field office will assist claimants with completing paperwork to begin an appeal if applicable.
DDS also processes Medicaid disability claims for the state of North Carolina. Medicaid disability claims can be filed by contacting a county Department of Social Services office. Once a Medicaid disability application is received, DDS will develop medical evidence and make a determination on disability using the same protocols as outlined for Social Security Disability benefits.
Prevailing Wage determinations are issued by the L&I's Industrial Statistician. A determination by the Industrial Statistician is a more formal and lengthy process for responding to your questions. The Industrial Statistician will make a determination, such as which scope to use, based on the facts presented. Sources used to make a determination include the laws, rules, and case law as well as legislative history and intent.
The List of Prevailing Wage Topics includes scopes of work, types of jobs and other areas pertaining to prevailing wage. Topics are listed in alphabetical order. Each topic includes a brief summary and link to the full policy or determination document.
In 2015, FDA released its final determination that Partially Hydrogenated Oils (PHOs) are not Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS). The determination is based on extensive research into the effects of PHOs, as well as input from stakeholders during the public comment period.
Since 2005 through 2022, States have submitted three SPPs as follows. States submitted SPPs initially in December 2005 under Part B and under Part C (one year after the 2004 IDEA amendments). The original SPP that each State submitted in 2005 covered a period of six years for Federal fiscal years (FFYs) 2005 through 2010 and was made up of quantifiable indicators (20 under Part B and 14 under Part C). These indicators measured either compliance with specific IDEA requirements (compliance indicators) or results and outcomes for children with disabilities and their families (results indicators). The original SPP was extended for two years for FFYs 2011 and 2012. In 2015, States submitted a second SPP that covered the six-year period for FFYs 2013 through 2018 and included a new results qualitative indicator under Part B and Part C, the State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP). The second SPP was extended for one year for FFY 2019. On February 1, 2022, States submitted their third SPP, which includes compliance and results indicators (including the SSIP). With the 2022 determinations, OSEP is providing States with its response to their SPPs.
If a species is listed by both the federal Endangered Species Act and the California Endangered Species Act (CESA), Fish and Game Code section 2080.1 allows an applicant who has obtained a federal incidental take statement (federal Section 7 consultation) or a federal incidental take permit (federal Section 10(a)(1)(B)) to request that the Director of CDFW find the federal documents consistent with CESA. If the federal documents are found to be consistent with CESA, a consistency determination (CD) is issued and no further authorization or approval is necessary under CESA.
To initiate the consistency determination process, an applicant must notify the Director of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, in writing, that they have received a federal incidental take statement or federal incidental take permit issued pursuant to the federal Endangered Species Act. The notice must include:
Yes. As of September 2016, CDFW is required to collect an application fee1 for consistency determinations requests. Fees for consistency determinations are not dependent upon project costs but do depend on whether the project will use a CDFW-approved conservation or mitigation bank to fulfill mitigation obligations under CESA. CDFW will not begin the review of a consistency determination request until it has collected the fee. Voluntary restoration projects are not subject to CESA application fees. Additionally, restoration projects may be eligible for streamlined processing through a Restoration Management Permit (RMP) or Restoration Consistency Determination (CD).
Receipt of a complete consistency determination request by the Director starts a 30-day timeline for processing the Consistency Determination. The Director will immediately have a notice of the consistency determination request published in the General Public Interest section of the California Regulatory Notice Register.
The Director will make a determination as to whether the federal incidental take statement or federal incidental take permit issued pursuant to the federal Endangered Species Act is consistent with CESA. If the Director determines the federal statement/permit is consistent with CESA, a Consistency Determination is issued to the applicant and no further authorization or approval is necessary under CESA.
