Violations:
Standard #: 63.2-1720.1-B-3
Description: Based on record review and interview, the program manager could not provide documentation that an out-of-state central registry (CPS) background check had been completed. Evidence: Based on review of the program managers sworn disclosure statement, it was documented that they resided outside of the state of Virginia within the last 5 years. When the inspector inquired whether a CPS background check had been completed for that state, the program manager stated that they think one was completed in April. There is no documentation that the background check had been submitted.

Plan of Correction: I will call later today to find out the status for my application.
