AHJ - CMS vs County/State

I recently finished an NFPA Training Webinar and would like to know who makes the final determination between the County/State Fire Marshal and The Department of Health and Human Services Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).  If CMS cites NFPA life/safety deficiencies in a county owned building, but the County FM or State FM disagree, who is the ultimate Authority Having Jurisdiction? Thank you.
