I-4-168 TAPE AUDIT
If the supervisory legal clerk refers the tape to a legal clerk for audit, the clerk-typist must enter the audit information on the WANG-OIS and notify the operating division by completing an audit memo (see > I-4-169, Exhibit E). The legal clerk performs the actual audit function. The legal clerk must make the appropriate changes on the transcript. He or she must then remove the name of the contractor who had prepared the transcript and sign his or her own name as auditor/transcriber, OHA Headquarters.
The legal clerk must then prepare a memo (see > I-4-169, Exhibit F or G), describing the defects and corrections, if any, and give the transcript to the clerk-typist. The clerk-typist must enter the pertinent data on the WANG-OIS and TAIPS and place the transcript on the shelf for pick-up by the division.
As described in section > I-4-153 B., a court records technician may also refer a transcript to Contracts Staff for audit. The supervisory legal clerk must enter the case on the WANG-OIS and assign the case to a legal clerk. The Contracts Staff must complete the audit in the same manner as described above and give the transcript to the clerk-typist for return to the court records technician. The clerk-typist must enter the appropriate data on the WANG-OIS and place the transcript on the shelf for division pick-up. Because the TAIPS tracks contractor processing, the clerk-typist must not make any TAIPS entries when a court records technician requests audit.
