The department shall maintain a list of individuals who are qualified mediators and knowledgeable in laws and regulations relating to the provision of Part C services. Mediators shall be selected on a random, rotational, or other impartial basis. An individual who serves as a mediator:


          (1)  May not be an employee of the department, a public agency, or a nonpublic service provider that is involved in the provision of early intervention or other services to the child; and


          (2)  May not have a personal or professional interest that conflicts with the person's objectivity.
