The commissioner shall determine private agencies' compliance with parts 9543.0040 to 9543.0070, 9543.0090 to 9543.0110, and 9543.0130. When a private agency is in compliance with parts 9543.0040 to 9543.0070, 9543.0090 to 9543.0110, and 9543.0130, the commissioner shall authorize the private agency to perform licensing functions delegated under part 9543.0030, subpart 2, for a period up to four years.

When the commissioner determines that a private agency's failure to comply with parts 9543.0040 to 9543.0070, 9543.0090 to 9543.0110, and 9543.0130 demonstrates a risk of harm to persons served by licensed programs, the commissioner shall revoke the private agency's authorization to perform licensing functions under part 9543.0030, subpart 2. Revocation of a private agency's authorization is grounds for negative licensing action against a license issued under parts 9545.0755 to 9545.0845. Revocation of authorization or a negative licensing action may be appealed according to Minnesota Statutes, sections 245A.07 and 245A.08.
