    3. Not have a Net Chains Started (“NCS”) deficit less than zero (0).
    4. Have surgical availability to accommodate Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday surgery dates with three weeks advance notice. Due to the high volume of NKR surgical activity, one surgical availability decline per month will be waived for Partner Centers.
    5. Report donor record review and virtual crossmatch results by 16:00 ET on the fourth business day from the day the NKR commences donor record reviews (e.g., If the NKR commences donor record reviews on Tuesday, the results must be recorded in the NKR no later than 16:00 ET Friday).
    6. Respond to all requests for donor review within two business days.
    7. Upload final crossmatch results to the NKR site at least four calendar days prior to the patient’s target surgery date (e.g., if a patient surgery is scheduled for a Tuesday, the final crossmatch results must be uploaded no later than the prior Friday). This excludes matches offered less than 14 days before the surgery date.
    8. Upload serology results to the NKR site at least six calendar days prior to the donor’s target surgery date (e.g., if a donor surgery is scheduled for a Tuesday, the serology results must be uploaded no later than the prior Wednesday). This excludes internal one-ways and matches offered less than 14 days before the surgery date.
    9. Maintain a virtual crossmatch accuracy >= to 95% for the last three months.
    10. Ensure all NKR referred donors receive prioritization for a living donor kidney and access to Donor Shield by donating as a voucher donor, a paired donor, or if they donate as a direct donor, they are properly coded as NKR internal direct.
