§ 1206. Referral to ADR.
(a) Request by Party Other Than Agency. Any party, other than the Agency, interested in resolving a dispute may request ADR by applying to an Agency's Executive Officer, Director, or Agency designee. The application shall contain:
(1) an election to mediate, to arbitrate, or to use either or both procedures; and
(2) the names, addresses, telephone and fax numbers or other appropriate electronic communication addresses or numbers of all parties to the dispute and those who represent them, if known.
Filing an application constitutes consent to Agency referral of the dispute to ADR. Filing an application shall not stay any pending proceeding and shall have no effect on any procedural or substantive right of any party to the dispute, except as provided below.
(b) Request by Agency. Any Agency may refer a matter to ADR with the written consent of each party to the dispute.
(c) Agency Review of Application. Within ten working days of the receipt of an application from a party requesting ADR, the Executive Officer, Director, or designee of the Agency shall review the application to determine if the dispute is suitable for ADR. If it is determined that the dispute is suitable for ADR, the Agency shall notify each party and shall file a request for ADR with the OAH. If the Agency determines that the dispute is not suitable for ADR, the Agency shall notify each party.
(d) Lack of Consent Not Reported. A lack of consent by any party or party's representative to one or more ADR processes shall not be reported to any judge, hearing officer or presiding officer to whom the matter is assigned.
(e) Filing with the OAH. The OAH may establish filing fees or other necessary fees to cover administrative costs. The filing of a request for ADR with the OAH shall not stay any pending proceeding and shall have no effect on any procedural or substantive right of any party to a dispute unless each party agrees otherwise in writing.
