A basket for traces is in a central location to the Accounts Examiners. The basket is worked by the Status Operations Unit (SOU).
- SOU collects the traces from the basket.
- SOU pulls any traces that are to be returned within two weeks and returns them to the Accounts
Examiner requesting the trace.
This helps to reduce wasted time and effort since the traces are sent to and returned from RMC which is in another building in Austin remote to the State Office.
- SOU bundles the traces and sends them to RMC - Employer Files.
