(1) The first-line supervisor is responsible for designating an employee to perform the initial pre-screening task and must ensure that pre-screening is applied to every food stamp inquiry.


(2) The first-line supervisor will ensure that all households filing an application and qualifying for expedited service are processed within the timeliness standards outlined in Section 1240-1-5-.05. When the application is received, it must be date stamped and procedures established to assure that it is processed timely. District Directors will review each county’s expedited processing procedures on a regular basis. In instances where non-compliance with pre-screening procedures is noted, corrective actions must be taken immediately.
