11revocation, or other disciplinary action, the Department shall
12use the services of a State certified general real estate
13appraiser, a State certified residential real estate
14appraiser, or the Real Estate Coordinator to assist in
15determining whether grounds for disciplinary action exist
16prior to commencing formal disciplinary proceedings.

10the Board or other special committee appointed by the
11Secretary, may remand the matter to the Board for its
12reconsideration of the matter based on the pleadings and
13evidence presented to the Board, or may enter a final order in
14contravention of the Board's recommendation. Notwithstanding a
15licensee's or applicant's failure to file a motion for
16rehearing, the Secretary shall have the right to take any of
17the actions specified in this subsection (d). Upon the
