5101:9-32-10 Food assistance: federal incentives or sanctions as a result of the quality assessment review.

(A) Incentive distribution process

If Ohio's food assistance quality assessment payment error rate results in Ohio being the recipient of a United States department of agriculture (USDA) bonus payment or incentive, the bonus payment or incentive will be distributed to the county department of job and family services (CDJFS) in accordance with the quality assessment review process established in rule 5101:9-32-01 of the Administrative Code.

(B) Sanction distribution process

If Ohio's food assistance quality assessment payment error rate exceeds standards prescribed in 7 CFR 275.23 by the USDA food and nutrition service, the state is subject to a federal sanction. If a federal sanction liability is imposed on Ohio, the sanction liability will be distributed by the Ohio department of job and family services (ODJFS) to each CDJFS that, in accordance with the quality assessment review process established in rule 5101:9-32-01 of the Administrative Code, is identified by ODJFS as being solely or partially responsible for the federal sanction liability.
