Each releasee on intermediate transitional detention who satisfactorily completes that phase of the shock incarceration program shall receive a certificate authorizing his release on parole.

(F) A releasee who is not released on parole after thirty days of intermediate transitional detention, due to his failure to meet the requirements of paragraph (E) of this rule, will remain in such detention until these requirements are met, if at all, within the sixty-day limit of the intermediate transitional detention phase of the shock incarceration program.

(1) A transfer pursuant to this paragraph shall be based upon a medical, psychological or psychiatric evaluation of the releasee's health and treatment options or upon information provided by the releasee to support his request for transfer.

(2) A transfer pursuant to this paragraph may be recommended by the supervising parole officer to the superintendent of parole supervision for concurrence or dissent. This recommendation and the comments of the superintendent of parole supervision shall be presented to the chief of the adult parole authority who shall make the final decision on transferring the releasee to a correctional institution.
