All ACPA Approved Teams must submit a Self-Audit Report and pay the team listing fee in the fall of each year. The purpose of the self-audit report is to help both the team and the Commission ensure that the team remains in compliance with the Standards for Approval of Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Teams during its approval period. The self-audit report can also be used as a tool to support teams as they track goals, quality assurance and performance
The self-audit report process is simpler than the full application and is only evaluated by the Commission if there is missing information or a potential issue. If an Approved Team does not complete the self-audit report or pay the team listing fee by the set deadline, the team may lose its approval status.
