I know ODJFS doesn't like to write rules for itself. However, we feel strongly that there should be some type of guidelines -- in rule or internal ODJFS policy -- that ensure revocations are processed timely. When a private agencies submits revocation paperwork for a family and ODJFS processes it for 4+ months, the home is still affiliated with the agency. The agency still has to offer training and give the home referrals to review. This is a waste of time for both the family and the private agency. You wouldn't expect a business to lay off an employee but have to keep them employed for 4+ months. Doing so would be a waste of time for the employer and employee.
