5101:9-32-01 Food assistance: quality assessment review process.

(A) Review process

(1) The Ohio department of job and family services (ODJFS) shall select a random sample of active food assistance cases for quality assessment review from each county, each month in accordance with sampling procedures prescribed in the 7 CFR 275.11 . The active cases selected are reviewed to determine whether the household was eligible for the month under review, and whether the household was receiving the correct level of benefits. This eligibility determination is based on an examination and verification of all elements of the household's eligibility including income, resources, and allowable deductions.

(2) ODJFS, in accordance with rule 5101:9-32-03 of the Administrative Code, will reporterror findings to the county department of job and family services ( CDJFS). The CDJFS may appeal error findings in accordance with rule 5101:9-32-03 of the Administrative Code.

(3) Monthly reports indicating each CDJFS' cumulative error rate, determined by dividing the sum of error dollars by the sum of food assistance dollars issued in the sample of reviews completed in each county, are posted on the ODJFS innerweb at: http://innerweb/ofs/BPI/00QAqa.shtml [File Link Not Available].
