Health Center Program Site Visit Protocol

Last updated: April 13, 2023

The Site Visit Protocol (SVP) is a guide to the operational site visits (OSVs) we conduct at health centers. It includes what we look for and how we assess compliance. 

It aligns with the Health Center Program Compliance Manual.

Changes made to the SVP

In 2023, we improved the format of the SVP and made it easier to read. This did not change the way we conduct OSVs. 

We stopped assessing the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) portion of OSVs on October 27, 2023. We will continue to assess FTCA risk management and claims management requirements during FTCA-specific applications and site visits.

The FTCA Deeming Requirements section is no longer in use. We will remove it in a future update.
