|FOL PROVIDERS WITH 10 OR MORE CHILD AUTHORIZATIONS; REFERENCE: FAMILY SUPPORT DIVISION|
The purpose of this memorandum is to introduce a new report,
titled “FOL Providers With 10 or More Child Authorizations”.
Effective immediately, this monthly report will be generated to county
offices who have registered FOL (Four Or Less) child care providers
whose child authorizations total ten or more. The intent of the
report is to alert counties of providers who are potentially in
non-compliance with child care licensing exemption rules.

relationship (grandchildren, nieces/nephews). Any child in the
provider’s care who is not related within the third degree, or not

COUNTY OFFICE RESPONSIBILITY:
The “FOL Providers With 10 or More Child Authorizations” report is listed by county number, provider DVN, provider name, and provider address. There are two columns on the report that indicate the total number of children who are authorized to the provider (Number of Total Authorizations) and how many of the children authorized to the provider are related (Number of Related Authorizations). The two columns are taken from the FAMIS child authorization screen (FM30) for each child that is authorized to a particular provider and then compiled to arrive at a total number of authorizations.
When a county office receives this report, they must take immediate
action to determine if the listed provider/s meet license exemption
