The supervisor is no longer required to consult with the director or manager before recommending an administrative penalty for legal review. The administrative penalty notification letter has been revised to state that the provider now has 30 days, rather than 20, to accept the penalty or request a due process hearing. Procedure is streamlined to allow staff to issue the order imposing an administrative penalty without a second review from Legal.
