(b) Range of agency's fee expressed in dollars; and
(c) Agency's fee as a percentage of the expected monthly salary.

$120.00 to $139.99
$350.00 to $399.99

(2) The agency may list the annual salary and agency fee as a percentage of the expected annual salary in addition to column C in the example above.
(3) The contract must contain any additional information concerning fees as required by law.
(4) Agencies cannot indicate, orally or in writing, that their contract and fee schedules are "approved" or in any way "recommended" by the state. However, they can indicate their contracts are "approved for use."
