Briefly describe the scope and type(s) of discovery available (e.g., depositions, interrogatories, etc.):
The parties may agree among themselves to engage in discovery, but the Hearing Officer cannot compel discovery. Discovery may include depositions (testimony given outside the hearing under oath), interrogatories (written questions and answers), and document requests. When appropriate, appellant-requested agency witnesses will be made available. Otherwise, with the Directors concurrence, the Hearing Officer may issue subpoenas for witnesses and documents.
