Cash Management    
*Timeliness of Transfer to UTF: Ratio of average daily loanable balance in Clearing Account to average daily Transfer to UTF: Ratio of the monthly average daily loanable balance (line 10, ETA 8414 report) to the average daily transfer to the Trust Fund (line 3, ETA 8405 report) divided by the number of days in the month.    
**Timeliness of Deposit to the Clearing Account: Elapsed time from the State’s receipt of employer contributions to their deposit in the clearing account, estimated from a random sample of contributions received by the state during a specified time interval.    

*The criterion for the measure of the ratio of the average daily loanable balance in the Clearing Acount to the average daily transfer of the UTF has been deferred for FY 2004 SQSP pending the outcome of UI Reform legislation.

**The measures was deferred pending development of a methodology that would provide uniform results for states that use a lock-box operation as opposed to an in-state cashiering operation.
