Comments/Notes on Adjudication Type(s): 
For salary offset, FRTIB regulations provide that the hearing official shall be an ALJ or an impartial individual who is not under the supervision or control of the Executive Director. (See 5 CFR 1639.22(f)). For administrative offset, the governing statute clearly does not provide for formal proceedings, mandating only "an opportunity for review" within an agency. (See 5 CFR 1639.51(c)).
