I-2-5-61.Use of Dually Qualified Vocational and Medical Experts

Last Update: 9/28/05 (Transmittal I-2-68)

In general, the rosters of MEs and VEs are sufficient to meet OHA's needs for expert witness testimony. OHA will not award a BPA for both ME and VE services to the same individual. If an individual applies to act as both an ME and VE and meets the qualification standards for both, OHA will assess the HO's expert witness needs and offer to place the individual on either the ME or the VE roster. For the duration of the one-year BPA, the HO may use that expert only in the capacity provided for in the BPA.
