(b) If a pre-release transfer request has been submitted, a sending state shall notify a receiving state:

  1. if the planned release date changes; or
  2. if recommendation for release of the offender has been withdrawn or denied.

(c) A receiving state may withdraw its acceptance of the transfer request if the offender does not report to the receiving state by the 5th business day following the offender’s intended date of departure and shall provide immediate notice of such withdrawal to the sending state.

ICAOS Advisory Opinions

2-2012 [Neither the acceptance of a request for transfer by a receiving state nor approval of reporting instructions can be the basis for either the determination of whether the sending state will release an offender from a correctional facility or the planned release date.]
