INSTRUCTIONS FOR CJA FORM 20
APPOINTMENT AND AUTHORITY TO PAY COURT-APPOINTED COUNSEL Read these instructions carefully before completing the form. Accuracy and thoroughness will aid in the prompt payment of the claim. If possible, use a typewriter to complete the form; otherwise, write legibly with a ball point pen (preferably black or dark blue ink). If the form is system generated, Items 1 through 12 and 14 will be preprinted on the form. Attach an itemized statement of the services provided and expenses incurred. Give the date and the number of hours claimed for each service provided. Provide dates for and a description of the expenses incurred. For additional guidance, see the Guidelines for the Administration of the Criminal Justice Act and Related Statutes (CJA Guidelines), Volume VII, Guide to Judiciary Policies and Procedures, which is available for reference in the Clerk's office. Appointed counsel may obtain investigative, expert, and other services necessary for adequate representation in accordance with the procedures set forth in subsection(e) of the Criminal Justice Act (CJA), 18 U.S.C. 3006A. Prior authorization from the presiding judicial officer is required for all such services where the cost, excluding expenses, will exceed $500. Failure to obtain prior authorization will result in the disallowance of any amount claimed for compensation in excess of $500, unless the presiding judicial officer, in the interest of justice, finds that timely procurement of necessary services could not await prior authorization. Payment for these services should be claimed directly by the service provider on a CJA Form 21, "Authorization and Voucher for Expert and Other Services." Vouchers shall be submitted no later than 45 days after the final disposition of the case, unless good cause is shown (paragraph 2.21A, CJA Guidelines). All payments made pursuant to this claim are subject to post-audit; contemporaneous time and attendance records as well as expense records must be maintained for three years after approval of the final voucher (paragraph 2.31, CJA Guidelines).

actual court day. (3) Hourly -- ordered under unusual circumstances to be delivered within 2 hours.

The cost will be paid from CJA funds. This policy does not preclude the court reporter from providing copies at the commercially competitive rate.

PAYEE'S NAME, MAILING ADDRESS AND TELEPHONE NUMBER: Print or type the full name and mailing address of the payee. Provide the payee's telephone number, including the area code.

A page of transcript shall consist of 25 lines typed on 8 -1/2 x 11 inch paper, prepared for binding on the left side, with 1-3/4 inch margin on the left side and a 3/8 inch margin on the right side.

If the 1099 should be sent to the attorney's Law Firm, indicate the TIN of the Law Firm or corporation and the Law Firm or corporate name in Item 19. CERTIFICATION OF ATTORNEY OR CLERK. The attorney's signature in Item 22 verifies that the transcript was received. Clerks of court may verify receipt on behalf of persons proceeding pro se, and on behalf of all CJA parties in districts if the practice is authorized by local rule of the court.
