Appendix - Procedural Guidelines for GFC AAC Chairs

1. Discussion by GFC AAC members of procedures only (NOT the merits and substance of the case). This discussion should include, but not be limited to:

a. A review of GFC procedures, including 1.5.4.1.e;
b. A check to see if there are questions about jurisdiction (see also #2 #3 and #4 below);
c. A discussion of any procedural issues, if necessary; and
d. A discussion of the timing for the hearing, including the scheduling of any possible second, or subsequent, session.

2. In the event there is a substantive question as to the jurisdiction of the GFC AAC, or if either party challenges the jurisdiction of the GFC AAC, then the Committee will hear substantive arguments concerning jurisdictional issues from the Appellant and Respondent. The Appellant and Respondent will withdraw once they have completed their presentations concerning jurisdictional issues. The Committee will deliberate and reach a decision.

3. If the Committee determines that the case falls outside its jurisdiction, the decision shall be communicated to the Appeals Coordinator and the parties.
a. The Chair shall provide a brief written summary of the decision regarding the issue of jurisdiction;
b. The written decision will normally be provided by the Chair to the Appeals Coordinator within ten (10) Working Days of the hearing;
c. The Appeals Coordinator will forward copies of the decision in accordance with Section 1.5.6.2.

4. If the Committee determines it has jurisdiction or reserves its decision on the question of jurisdiction pending hearing the merits and substance of the case, the Chair shall communicate the Committee's decision.

a. The Committee shall hear the merits and substance of the case with Appellant and Respondent present (see Section 1.5.5 Suggested Hearing Procedures).

5. The Chair may seek the assistance of any member of the Committee in the preparation of the written reasons. The final decision will be signed by the Chair, on behalf of, and with the full authority of, the Committee.
