§ 19.36. Prehearing statements.

 (a)  Filing of prehearing statement. Each party to a protest shall file a prehearing statement in accordance with the scheduling order.

 (b)  Content of prehearing statement. A prehearing statement must contain:

   (1)  A concise statement of the facts that will be offered by oral or documentary evidence at the hearing and a statement of any unusual questions of evidence anticipated with respect to the proof of such facts.

   (2)  A statement of any questions of law anticipated with respect to the issues in the case. The questions shall be presented with a statement of authority supporting the position taken.

   (3)  The names and addresses of all persons who may be called as witnesses. The identification of a witness does not create any obligation to call the witness or to procure the witness’s attendance at the hearing.

   (5)  A list of all exhibits and copies of the exhibits that a participant intends to use at the hearing.
