ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE ON POPULATION 12/HIGH DOLLAR - MARCH, 2013
Additional guidance on reporting and validating Population 12 has been posted as modifications to the "Questions and Answers on High Dollar" and "High Dollar Guide." See the ETA 227 Changes segment of "In this Section."
DV SOFTWARE VERSION 4.2.7 RELEASED - FEBRUARY, 2013
The Data Validation (DV) State Web Software Version 4.2.7 has been installed on state servers. This release corrects errors found in the calculation of high dollar overpayments in Population 12. States can now resume working on this population.
SOFTWARE BUG AFFECTING BENEFITS POPULATION 12 - DECEMBER, 2012
We found two problems in Population 12. There are instances where the dollar amount of high dollar overpayment records is not being added to the high dollar overpayment amount total. Also, the software does not provide a way to add the fraud (or nonfraud) accumulated overpayment amount from a previous quarter when there is no overpayment of the same type established in the reporting quarter. These bugs will be fixed in the next release. In the meantime, states should stop working on Population 12 until further notice.
SUPPLEMENTARY GUIDANCE ON DUPLICATE DETECTION ISSUES - NOVEMBER, 2012
Some validators have reported that the DV software identifies as duplicates legitimate, countable records. A new guide discusses this issue and gives workarounds. See "Duplicate Detection Issues" in the Supplementary Guidance segment of "In this Section".
SUPPLEMENTARY GUIDANCE ON 227 REPORT REVISIONS - OCTOBER, 2012
Questions and answers on High Dollar overpayments and other ETA 227 reporting issues, and a guide to reporting and validating High Dollar amounts, have been added to the "ETA 227 Changes" segment of In this Section. Most of these questions were in response to the February Webinar on changes to the ETA 227 report and the September Webinar on the 227 revisions. The Q&As will also be issued formally via a UIPL that is now in clearance.
DV SOFTWARE VERSION 4.2.5 RELEASED - AUGUST, 2012
The Data Validation (DV) State Web Software Version 4.2.5 has been installed on state servers. This release corrects several errors in the software and incorporates changes due to the revision of the ETA 227 report. Because of these changes, states are required to validate Populations 12, 13 and 14 and the new Population 15 during VY2013. For more information see the software release notes under "In This Section".
BENEFITS MODULE 3 FEDERAL TEMPLATE PUBLISHED - AUGUST, 2012
The federal template for the Benefits Module 3 has been published. This template reflects changes due to the revision of the ETA 227 report. States are required to update the affected steps and publish their modules during VY2013.
ETA 227 Documentation - April, 2012
Drafts of the new record layouts and subpopulation specifications for Populations 12 through 15 have been published. These documents highlight the changes to the DV program due to the change in structure of the ETA 227 report. States can use these draft documents to start constructing their extract files for Populations 12 through 14 and the new Population 15, with the precaution that these could be changed prior to their final publication. These documents can be found under In This Section/ETA 227 Changes.
Also, we have updated and restructured the In This Section.
SOFTWARE BUG AFFECTING BENEFITS POPULATIONS 13 and 14 - March, 2012
A bug affecting Populations 13 and 14 was recently called to our attention. Although the Reports Validation screen shows that all groups Pass, the View Population Scores screen shows Report Validation and the population as having failed validation, and a failing score is transmitted to the UI Database. This bug will be fixed as part of the changes needed to accommodate the revisions to the ETA 227 report; the new software will be released sometime after the June 11 reporting deadline. In the meanwhile, states should submit Population 13 and 14 results as usual, noting any incidence of the problem in the Report Validation comments and by an alert e-mail to email@example.com so that the National Office can change Fails to Passes manually and no passing scores are lost.
DV SOFTWARE VERSION 4.2.4 RELEASED - FEBRUARY, 2012
The Data Validation (DV) State Web Software Version 4.2.4 has been installed on state servers. This release corrects several errors in the software. For more information see the software release notes under "In This Section".
MODULE 3 SOFTWARE VERSION 2.2.2 RELEASED - FEBRUARY, 2012
The Module 3 Software Version 2.2.2 has been installed on the National Office system. This release corrects several errors in the software. The federal template was not changed. For more information see the software release notes under "In This Section".
UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE DATA VALIDATION MONITORING GUIDE (HANDBOOK 412) PUBLISHED - FEBRUARY 2012
As announced on February 22, 2012, through Field Memorandum (FM) No.1-12, the new UI DV Monitoring Guide (Handbook 412) has been published. It provides Regional Office (RO) staff with step-by-step instructions for assessing the accuracy of state's DV results through periodic monitoring.

See In This Section/DV Advisories/ FM 1-12: 2012 Issuance of the Employment and Training (ET) Handbook No. 412, Unemployment Insurance (UI) Data Validation (DV) Monitoring Guide; and In This Section/Handbooks & Reporting Instructions/Handbook 412, UI DV Monitoring Guide.
