(A) The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction (ODRC) shall establish performance-based general program operating standards for subsidized community correction act programs funded through the Bureau of Community Sanctions. In accordance with applicable ODRC policy, compliance shall be determined by the Bureau through an annual or bi-annual program review with site visits in the intervening years intended to monitor program progress toward compliance with program view recommendations. Unannounced site visits may be conducted to review specific standards at any time when there is a reason to believe that programs may be non-compliant with established standards.
(B) In addition to establishing minimum operating expectations, Bureau of Community Sanctions performance-based standards shall serve as a guide to the programs to implement effective evidence-based community corrections practices.
