D. Data and program review. Prior to the certification process, each ASAP director shall submit to the executive director requested data concerning the operation of the ASAP. After compilation of the requested information, it shall be distributed to the respective regional certification team. Each team shall review the data and perform preliminary audits. Following this review, on-site visits shall be scheduled. Additional data shall be collected and observations made during the on-site visit to validate the documentation submitted. Staff interviews, review of samples of client files and financial records as well as a physical examination of the office space shall be performed.

At the completion of the on-site review, the certification review team shall hold a summation conference with the director of the program. During this conference, the certification review team shall present areas of concern for discussion and clarification, and the ASAP director shall be given full opportunity to comment when a program is found out of compliance.
