(c) What information may be reported, if known. Entities described in paragraph (a) of this section should report, if known, the information as described in §60.15(c) of this part.
(d) Access to documents. Each state must provide the Secretary (or an entity designated by the Secretary) with access to the documents underlying the actions described in paragraphs (a)(1) through (4) of this section, as may be necessary for the Secretary to determine the facts and circumstances concerning the actions and determinations for the purpose of carrying out section 1921.
