This memorandum transmits Attachment 2, a set of questions and answers on the serious deficiency process for institutions and family day care homes. The attachment provides answers to questions on the determination of serious deficiency, corrective action, responsible principals and individuals, appeals, and the National Disqualified List.

This is the second in a series of questions and answers on various topics presented during the recent training sessions on the second interim management improvement rule. We addressed institution applications in the first set of questions and answers, CACFP Policy #06-2005, issued on Sept. 23, 2005.

Please contact your regional office if your state agency has additional questions concerning these topics.
