Certification Appeals
  1. Any firm that has been denied certification or whose eligibility is removed may submit an administrative appeal to the USDOT, provided that it has exercised its rights to a local hearing, if applicable.
  2. Anyone submitting an ineligibility complaint, including a concerned USDOT operating administration, may appeal to the USDOT if the Adjudicatory Board does not find reasonable cause to propose removing the firm's eligibility or, following a removal of eligibility proceeding, determines that the firm is eligible.
  3. All administrative appeals must be filed in writing within 90 days of the Adjudicatory Board's final decision to:
    U.S. Department of Transportation
    Office of Civil Rights 1200
    New Jersey Avenue, SE.
    Washington, D.C. 20590
  4. The Adjudicatory Board's final decision shall remain in effect concerning any matter under appeal, pending the USDOT's determination.
