This scheme covers informal hearings performed by Administrative Judges in the Office of Appeals. All cases involve some form of administrative sanction against a HUD employee, grantee, or contractor. Though technically "informal" in the APA sense, the procedural formality observed in most types of cases is similar to procedures used in HUD's APA hearings. Compare 24 pt. 26 subparts A (applicable to Office of Appeals) vs. B (applicable to APA hearings). Some, but not all, cases permit appeal to the Secretary.
