How will I be given the opportunity to participate in a communication between the hearing officer and the auditor?
With emails, the hearing officer and the auditor will copy you or your authorized representative.
For meetings or phone calls between the hearing officer and the auditor, the hearing officer will contact you or your authorized representative by email to inform you of the schedule date and time of the meeting or call.
You will be given a reasonable amount of time to respond that you wish to participate. If you do not respond by the stated deadline, or respond that you do not wish to participate, the meeting or call will proceed as scheduled.
If you wish to participate but are unavailable at the scheduled time, you should let the hearing officer know when you are available. The hearing officer will make reasonable attempts to accommodate your schedule.
