Notification of the suspension shall be sent by DCI via certified mail to the DCIN user's agency head and to the DCIN user. The agency shall be audited within 90 days of reinstatement of a user's certification.
(3) "Suspension of services" means an agency's direct access to DCIN is suspended for a period not to exceed two weeks after the North Carolina CSO's finding of fault, and the agency head must then appear before the CSO to respond to the cited violation. This suspension may be limited to certain files or may include a complete suspension of services, depending on the administrative procedure violated.
