have met the statutory criteria for TAA.
    The Department determines that a significant number or proportion 
of the workers at the subject firm have been partially or totally

center services supplied by the subject workers, and that the shift in 
the supply of these services contributed importantly to worker 
separations at the subject firm.
    For purposes of the Trade Act, as amended, the term contributed

important than any other cause.
