Since the removal of the Social Security Numbers (SSNs) in IQCS, there has been an increase in the number of duplicate responders added to the system. To aid the Account Manager in identifying those responders with records already in IQCS, the IQCS New Responder form was modified and a new feature to query for existing records was developed and took effect Wednesday, August 5th.
The ROSS Clearinghouse staff and the IQCS staff have agreed that it is most trouble-free to transfer the responder in IQCS. It is a proven process that does not require any action by the dispatcher. This allows the new unit to certify and send qualifications to ROSS. If the responder is transferred in ROSS, they are under the old certification.
