(B) If an agency has not implemented the statewide automated child welfare information system (SACWIS), the agency which recommended the certificate shall, within thirty calendar days of the effective date of a voluntary termination, submit the information by way of the JFS 01317 "Recommendation for Certification/Recertification of a Foster Home" (rev. 1/2003) to the Ohio department of job and family services (ODJFS) indicating that the foster home certificate has been voluntarily terminated, and that the foster home record is closed.
