  • Average Age of Pending Lower Authority Appeals: a count of all pending Lower Authority Appeals divided into the sum of their age in days. (Contingent upon OMB approval to collect the data.)
  • Performance goal deferred until state performance using the new parameters has been recorded for four quarters.
  • 80% of Lower Authority Appeals Decided within 45 days of filing: Intra + Interstate UI, UCFE, UCX 2
  •  
  • 95% of Lower Authority Appeals Decided within 90 days of filing: Intra + Interstate UI, UCFE, UCX (no criterion set)
