Change orders are reviewed based on the backup documentation provided, and a determination letter is issued for each change order submitted. Local Education Agencies (LEA’s) and Regional Education Service Centers (RECS’s) are allowed six (6) months from the date of the determination letter to file an appeal of the eligibility determination. This is done by contacting our office in writing and indicating that there is valid reason to contest the determination. Typically, the primary reason change orders are accepted for re-review is that additional missing documentation is being provided, which was not available at the time of the original submission.
Local Education Agencies (LEA’s) and Regional Education Service Centers (RECS’s) are permitted one (1) re-review of a change order that has been reviewed and that has had a determination letter issued.
