§ 1333. Expert Advisors.
(a) With consent of the Parties the Arbitrator may select expert or technical advisors. Such services shall be provided by a contract between the Office of Administrative Hearings and the advisor. Such contract shall be on terms and conditions which are consistent with the State's laws, policies, and procedures.
(b) Petitioner or Respondent may object for cause to the use of a particular individual as an advisor. If such objection is not timely made, it shall be deemed waived.
(c) An expert technical advisor, except with the written consent of Petitioner and Respondent which shall be filed in the record, shall not be in communication with the Arbitrator on the merits of a contested matter except:
(1) in writing, with copies served on all Parties, or
(2) orally on the record in the presence of or after due notice to all Parties, and all evidence, opinions or other information which the expert testifies to or furnishes is subject to cross-examination and pertinent objections.
