Comments/Notes on Adjudication Structure:
Review of initial decisions by an Administrative Law Judge relating to enforcement action by the Department of State to suspend, terminate, or deny funding to program participants or applicants based on noncompliance with requirements under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Rehabilitation Act, Age Discrimination Act, or Title IX. (22 CFR Parts 141, 142, 143 & 146). Either party may appeal the ALJ's decision.
Other than providing each party with an opportunity to appeal an adverse decision by the ALJ, current appellate procedures set forth in 22 CFR Part 141 do not specify any procedures for appellate review other than requests for review must be filed within 30 days of of the mailing of the ALJ's decision. (See 22 CFR 141.9(d); 22 CFR 142.70, 143.37, 146.605).
