The Washington State Department of Corrections (DOC) says it has no record of a case, but the case is under DOC supervision.
Superior courts using the Legal Financial Obligation (LFO) billing application have experienced problems when the DOC loads a billing status code onto the Case Obligation Status (COS) screen that indicates there is No Data at DOC for the case (code = NDC), and yet the court has evidence that the offender is (or has been) supervised by the DOC. The problem may be caused by a confusion of names and/or case numbers. The court can attempt to correct this problem with the following steps:
- Find the offender on the DOC's Offender Management Network Information (OMNI) system. Note the Washington State Criminal ID (SID) number.
- On the obligor's JIS Individual Information (PER) screen, erase the DOC number (if present).
- Type the SID number found in OMNI in the SID number field on the PER screen.
- The next time the DOC uploads data to the AOC, the DOC number will be uploaded based on a match with the SID number and the DOC should load a billing status code that is more accurate than NDC.
Refer to the JIS Online Manual, LFO Billing Case Information topic, for more information.
