Closing an open enforcement action if the referral to Department of Justice (DOJ) is returned to the Region or withdrawn by the Region

When a civil judicial enforcement action record is created in ICIS the first milestone is the date a referral is made to DOJ.  If the referral to DOJ is returned to the Region or withdrawn by the Region because in some cases the Region decides instead to pursue the action administratively, the original enforcement action in ICIS must be closed.  An enforcement action conclusion should NOT be entered into ICIS.  Rather, a date should be entered for the milestone “Closed.”  If the action is settled administratively, then a new administrative enforcement action can be opened and the results of the conclusion should be captured.  The original judicial referral should not be flagged “Combined with Another Case.”  Nothing was combined-the judicial action simply never went forward.
