(1) An institution receiving notice that it is deficient in some aspect of the CACFP shall submit to the department a corrective action plan to correct the deficiency. The plan must be postmarked within 30 days of receipt of the deficiency notice provided by the department, or within such other timeframe as is set forth in the deficiency notice. Any institution that fails to submit a timely corrective action plan will be determined to be seriously deficient, or if the original notice stated the institution was seriously deficient, the institution may be subject to termination in accordance with the provisions set forth in 7 CFR 226.6.
(2) All corrective action plans are subject to review and approval by the department. If a corrective action plan is rejected by the department, a revised corrective action plan that addresses the deficiencies in the original plan must be submitted to the department no later than 15 calendar days from the date of receipt of the notice of rejection of the original plan. Any institution that fails to submit an amended corrective action plan within 15 calendar days of the receipt of the notice from the department shall be determined seriously deficient, and will be subject to termination from the program.
