§ 1.1917   Referrals to the Department of Justice and transfer of delinquent
debt to the Secretary of Treasury.

   (a) Referrals to the Department of Justice shall be made in accordance
   with the standards set forth in part 904 of the Federal Claims
   Collection Standards (31 CFR part 904).

   (b) The DCIA includes separate provisions governing the requirements
   that the Commission transfer delinquent debts to Treasury for general
   collection purposes (cross-servicing) in accordance with 31 U.S.C.
   3711(g)(1) and (2), and notify Treasury of delinquent debts for the
   purpose of administrative offset in accordance with 31 U.S.C.
   3716(c)(6). Title 31, U.S.C. 3711(g)(1) requires the Commission to
   transfer to Treasury all collection activity for a given debt. Under
   section 3711(g), Treasury will use all appropriate debt collection
   tools to collect the debt, including referral to a designated debt
   collection center or private collection agency, and administrative
   offset. Once a debt has been transferred to Treasury pursuant to the
   procedures at 31 CFR 285.12, the Commission will cease all collection
   activity related to that debt.

   (c) All non-tax debts of claims owed to the Commission that have been
   delinquent for a period of 180 days shall be transferred to the
   Secretary of the Treasury. Debts which are less than 180 days
   delinquent may also be referred to the Treasury. Upon such transfer the
   Secretary of the Treasury shall take appropriate action to collect or
   terminate collection actions on the debt or claim. A debt is past-due
   if it has not been paid by the date specified in the Commission's
   initial written demand for payment or applicable agreement or
   instrument (including a post-delinquency payment agreement) unless
   other satisfactory payment arrangements have been made.
