Rule 5507-1-19 | Rules enforcement.
(A) When a PSAP is found out of compliance with any rule contained in this chapter, the office of the state 9-1-1 administrator will make contact with the county 9-1-1 coordinator and offer assistance in complying with the rule. The state 9-1-1 administrator will also notify the county 9-1-1 planning committee of a sixty-day time period to correct the issue and achieve compliance.
(B) When the state 9-1-1 administrator concludes that a PSAP has not achieved compliance within the sixty-day time period, the office of state 9-1-1 administrator will notify the county 9-1-1 coordinator that the administrator finds the county out of compliance and county 9-1-1 coordinator will be scheduled for appearance before the ESINet steering committee within sixty days. The ESINet steering committee will review the issue, hear from the interested parties and make a formal determination of whether the PSAP is out of compliance with the established rule.
(C) When a finding of non-compliance has been determined by the ESINet steering committee as outlined in paragraph (B) of this rule, the county 9-1-1 coordinator will, within thirty days, formulate and submit a written response outlining the county's plans to reach compliance.
(D) The ESINet steering committee will review the submitted plan outlined in paragraph (C) of this rule and determine a date by which the county must come into compliance.
(E) If the county has not reached compliance by the date set in paragraph (D) of this rule, the office of the state 9-1-1 administrator will notify the department of taxation to suspend wireless 9-1-1 government assistance funding to the affected county until such time as the county returns to compliance. The funding suspension is for the entire county, as the county has sufficient authority to compel compliance at the local PSAP.
(F) Upon written notification of compliance by the county 9-1-1 coordinator, the office of state 9-1-1 administrator will, without unnecessary delay, verify compliance. If compliance is confirmed, the office of the state 9-1-1 administrator will notify the department of taxation to resume the funding to the county from the wireless 9-1-1 government assistance fund. No escrow or suspended funds will be restored to the county for the period of the suspension.
(G) The ESINet steering committee serves as the final authority in determining when the PSAP has achieved compliance.
(H) For purposes of this chapter, the office of the state 9-1-1 administrator has the exclusive authority to audit and review PSAPs for compliance.
