“(15) “Recommended order” means the official recommendation of an administrative law judge assigned by [DOAH] or of any other duly authorized presiding officer, other than an agency head or member of an agency head, for the final disposition of a proceeding under ss. 120.569 and 120.57.”§120.57(1)(k) FS outlines what constitutes an RO:
“(k) The presiding officer shall complete and submit to the agency and all parties a recommended order consisting of findings of fact, conclusions of law, and recommended disposition or penalty, if applicable, and any other information required by law to be contained in the final order.”Please take note that there are only three things that constitute an RO:
“All parties may submit proposed findings of fact, conclusions of law, orders, and memoranda on the issues within a time designated by the presiding officer. Unless authorized by the presiding officer, proposed orders shall be limited to 40 pages.”The PO is – as it sounds – your proposed verdict of the case.3 Typically, you’ll get to submit it after you’ve had your hearing. Usually, your DOAH ALJ will set the deadline for it.
