Re: Assumption/Reject Overrides on Electronic Corrections
To electronically correct an ISIR using an assumption or a reject
override code, the submitted correction record must contain a
data element in addition to the change to the override code.
(The data element being changed does not have to relate to the
ISIR fields affected by the override.)
If no field needs to be corrected other than the override code,
CPS recommends you add the middle initial if it is missing, or
you make a minor change to the street address such as changing
the word "Street" to "St" or vice versa.
Correction records sent containing only an override code but no
data elements will be rejected for transmission reject 05 (invalid
format). The format is invalid because CPS is expecting a field
number and data to correct. EDExpress will allow you to send
only the override codes with no data elements.
This correction process is identical for 1995-96 and 1996-97.
CPS is reviewing this process for 1996-97 and will notify you
when a change is made to allow you to only send the override
code with no data element changes. Since 1995-96 processing is
nearly over, no changes will be made and the above process
should be followed to finish out the year.
