2.5.2. Program Response to the Site Visit Report

The program is required to submit a response to the site visit report within 2 weeks of receiving the report. The beginning of the response must include the name and state of the program visited, the program level visited, the name(s) of the site visitor(s), and the date of the response.

Next, the program lists each accreditation standard and question raised by the COA in its letter of instructions and states whether it agrees or disagrees with site visit finding, corrects any errors of fact, and clarifies information that may have been incorrectly understood by the site visitor(s). Disagreements with the site visit report should be stated clearly, and additional documentation should be provided if necessary.

Information about when the program response to the site visit report is due and where it should be sent is on the Timetable for Reaffirmation.
