b)         The Department shall conduct surveys of licensed agencies and their certified programs and services.

1)         The Department shall conduct scheduled surveys to determine compliance at the time of license renewal and may conduct unscheduled surveys to investigate complaints.

 

2)         Determination of compliance with the service requirements contained in Subpart B of this Part shall be based on a survey centered on the individual which samples services being provided.

(Section 4(f) of the Community-Integrated Living Arrangements Licensure and Certification Act)  During the provisional license period, the agency may be limited in the number of individuals it may serve and the number of sites it may supervise pending a determination of eligibility for full licensure.

 

d)         A license, other than the one-year provisional license, shall be valid for three years unless revoked in accordance with Section 4(e) of the Community-Integrated Living Arrangements Licensure and Certification Act.

 

e)         Agencies found during a survey to be in substantial compliance with this Part shall be relicensed for an additional three-year period.
