New Procedures to Ensure Timely Licensing Renewals

-- from Partners, A publication of DHR, CCA, Fall 1999


CCA has instituted new procedures to help ensure that child care center licenses, letters of compliance, and family day care registrations are renewed in a timely manner. These changes were made following a legislative audit of CCA's licensing renewal practices.

The legislative audit team found that many providers do not submit completed renewal applications before their existing license or registration expires. In these cases, because a new license or registration cannot be issued until a complete application has been filed, CCA has allowed the facility or home to continue operating beyond the expiration date of its existing license or registration. Sometimes the renewal application has not been completed until many months after the expiration date. The audit team found this practice unacceptable and recommended that CCA develop procedures to encourage providers to file timely renewal applications.
