(a) The local primary agency must:
(1) facilitate the development of annual fund requests that identify arrangements with other local and regional agencies providing services as part of the state's early childhood intervention system and that result in service availability on a year-round basis, as necessary;
(2) administer funds received through the annual fund request;
(3) provide oversight for data collection efforts;
(4) facilitate completion of interagency early intervention committee duties as indicated in section 125A.30;
(5) request mediation from the state lead agency, if necessary;
(6) request assistance from the state lead agency when disputes between agencies cannot be resolved within 20 calendar days; and
(7) receive written requests from parents for matters that may be resolved through due process hearings.
(b) When the local primary agency is not an education agency, resources distributed under the early intervention fund must be transferred from a local educational agency to a noneducation agency using a state provided contract. A local primary agency may budget for indirect costs at an amount not to exceed five percent of the amount allocated from the early intervention fund.
