(A) The state agency or state university's (the "contracting agency's") equal employment opportunity officer (officer) shall provide a "Waiver Compliance Report" (report) upon request by the coordinator. The report shall include a description of the contracting agency's procedures for evaluating and granting an EDGE waiver pursuant to rule 123:2-14-10 of the Administrative Code. The Report will be made on forms provided by the Ohio department of administrative services, equal opportunity division (DAS/EOD) and made in a manner designated by DAS/EOD.

(B) DAS/EOD shall review the report submitted by the officer and make recommendations to the contracting agency. If the contracting agency fails to provide a report within the time designated in the request by the coordinator or if the coordinator determines that the submitted documentation is insufficient to demonstrate that the contracting agency is in compliance with the requirements set forth in section 123.152 of the Revised Code, then the coordinator may conduct a compliance review and issue an agency compliance report.

(C) The director of the Ohio department of administrative services (director) may consider non-compliance with the requirements set forth in section 123.152 of the Revised Code, as evidenced by the "Agency Compliance Report," or DAS/EOD's recommendations in the "Agency Compliance Report," in the director's evaluation of whether to grant a release and permit to purchase goods and services to the requesting agency.

(D) The Ohio facilities construction commission (OFCC) may consider a contracting agency's non-compliance with the requirements set forth in section 123.152 of the Revised Code as evidenced by the "Agency Compliance Report" or DAS/EOD's recommendations, in OFCC's evaluation of whether to grant a request to locally administer a construction project.
