3737-1-11 Technical audits.

(A) The director or the director's designee may conduct technical audits during reviews of applications for reimbursement to determine if the work performed was substantially in excess of that necessary to meet the requirements of the fire marshal, to ensure compliance with applicable rules and to verify site corrective actions. Prior to any technical audit, the director shall give the responsible person written notice of the proposed audit. The responsible person shall make available to the director or the director's designee all records and documents which the director or the director's designee deems necessary to the completion of the audit.

(B) The director shall upon completion of the audit prepare a written report of the findings. A copy of this report shall be sent to the responsible person and to the fire marshal. The responsible person may file written objections to the director's report within thirty days after the mailing of the director's report. The board, upon receipt of the objections, shall appoint a referee to conduct an adjudication hearing in accordance with section 119.09 of the Revised Code. Thereafter the board shall make a decision to approve, disapprove, or modify the referee's findings and recommendations.

(C) Nothing within this rule shall be deemed to grant standing to a non-responsible person to bring a claim against the financial assurance fund.
