This line-by-line guide is intended to provide instruction regarding the correct placement of services and expenses on the CAC claim form. Recently the projects have been asked to evaluate specific task-related time on specific lines. Look for the Appendix of tasks at the end of the guide for suggested task-related line entries and frequent errors encountered.
In addition, please consult our Panel Claims Manual (PDF) and other claims tab resources for a full understanding of claim policies.
TIP: It is counsel’s responsibility to provide explanations for any over-guideline or other extraordinary time/expense claimed. Familiarity with policies, procedures and statewide guidelines in the claims manual in combination with the line-by-line guide will assist counsel to identify normal versus extraordinary claimed items. A claimed item may be paid if it is over the guideline, but an explanation is always required.
