to provide a competency evaluation or competency restoration treatment:
(1) The clerk of the court shall provide the court order and the charging documents,
including the request for bail and certification of probable cause, to the state hospital. If the order is for competency restoration treatment and the competency evaluation

the secretary, the clerk shall also provide the state hospital with a copy of all
previous court orders related to competency or criminal insanity and a copy of any
of the evaluation reports;
(2) The prosecuting attorney shall provide the discovery packet, including a statement
of the defendant's criminal history, to the state hospital; and
(3) If the court order requires transportation of the defendant to a state hospital,

to the state hospital admission staff.
