Reimbursement Authority is a program that provides the Department the ability to enter into a voluntary agreement with an applicant for expedited processing of certain applications. Under such an agreement, the applicant pays the cost for expedited services not otherwise available.
The Department’s Reimbursement Authority Program consists of internal staff that processes Transfer Applications and the review of Claims of Beneficial Use.
Applicants interested in an estimate of the cost and timeline for expedited processing must submit a Reimbursement Authority Estimate Application along with a non-refundable fee of $125.
In addition to the fee for expedited processing, the Department collects the statutorily required application fee.
