Rule 164-1-11 | Project selection criteria.
(A) In selecting projects for submission to the director or the administrator, district committees, executive committees, and small government subcommittees, shall comply with all the requirements of divisions (B) and (D) of section 164.06 of the Revised Code. Any project application submitted for financial assistance by such a committee shall be accompanied with the committee's final score for the application. The committee shall retain the detailed scoring analysis for each application which shall be made available to the director or the administrator upon request.
(B) Each district committee, executive committee, or small government subcommittee shall only employ project selection criteria referenced in paragraph (A) of this rule, and shall not use any of the following unrelated criteria:
(1) A preproject application determination that certain subdivisions are entitled, because of their relative population sizes or for any other reason, to awards of financial assistance up to a fixed dollar value;
(2) Formal or informal decisions to select projects for formal submission contingent upon an applicant's financial or other support for the operating expenses of the committees, staff, or agents of the district;
(3) A district-wide formula, whether formalized or not, allocating funding entitlement amongst subdivisions on a per capita basis or otherwise, except to the extent expressly authorized under division (G) of section 164.05 of the Revised Code.
(C) Any project application that is not submitted in compliance with paragraph (A) or (B) of this rule may be disproved by the director or the administrator.
