Suspension or termination of institutional participation.
Upon receipt of a complaint or other evidence that an institution has failed or is failing to comply with program rules and regulations, the board staff shall notify the institution by mail of the nature of such allegations and conduct a review of the alleged violations.
If preliminary findings indicate that a violation or violations may have occurred or are occurring, the board staff shall attempt, through mediation and conciliation, to effect corrections and/or secure reimbursement from the institution in event any funds were expended out of compliance with the provisions of WAC 250-20-061(2).
If no agreement is reached through the mediation and conciliation process, the executive director shall file a formal complaint with the board and notify the institution of the conduct which warrants the complaint. Based upon a finding pursuant to RCW 34.04.170, the complaint may include an order for a summary suspension pending proceedings for termination, suspension, reimbursement or other action.
The executive director or a designated hearing officer shall conduct a hearing and make findings and conclusions in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act, chapter 34.04 RCW. The findings, conclusions and any recommendations for action shall be submitted to the board for final action pursuant to RCW 34.04.110. The board may accept or reject, in whole or in part, any recommendations made by the hearing officer, may remand for further findings and/or take any other action the board deems appropriate under the circumstances.
