What happens after the record is closed?
(1) After the record is closed, the ALJ must enter an initial or final order and send copies to the parties.
(2) The maximum time an ALJ has to send a decision is ninety calendar days after the record is closed, but many department programs have earlier deadlines. Specific program rules may set the deadlines.
(3) OAH must send the official record of the proceedings to the BOA. The record must be complete when it is sent, and include all parts required by WAC 388-02-0512
