b) For projects with no cost, the permit holder shall submit a written notice to HFSRB of the project's conclusion (e.g., initiation of a new service, discontinuation, certification of additional dialysis stations).

 

c) For a project with a cost below the capital expenditure minimum, the permit holder shall submit a notice that the project has been brought to a conclusion and submit a report of final realized costs containing the following:

 

1) a detailed itemization of all project costs and sources of funds;

 

2) a certification that the final realized costs, as itemized, are the total costs required to complete the project and that there are no additional associated costs or capital expenditures related to the project;

 

3) certification attesting to compliance with the requirements of this Section shall be in the form of a notarized statement signed by an authorized representative of the permit holder; and

The audited financial report, when required, shall be completed by an independent certified public accountant. A financial report completed by a permit holder's internal auditor will not be accepted.

 

e) Failure to file final realized costs reports will result in subsequent applications for permit filed by the permit holder to be deemed incomplete by HFSRB staff until the required report is filed.
