   (b)    Decision by Director. The Director must give the contractor and the using department a written decision approving or denying the dispute in whole or in part within 45 days after receiving the dispute.  If the Director does not resolve the dispute within 45 days, the dispute is denied.
   (c)    Appeal to Chief Administrative Officer.
      (1)   The contractor or the using department may appeal the Director's decision resolving a dispute in writing to the Chief Administrative Officer within 30 days after receiving the Director's decision, or if no decision is rendered, within 75 days after submitting the dispute.
      (2)   The Chief Administrative Officer must decide the appeal after considering any written information submitted by the Director, using department, and the contractor.
      (3)   The Chief Administrative Officer may hold a hearing on the appeal.  The Chief Administrative Officer must complete any hearing on the appeal within:
         (A)   60 days after receiving the appeal for disputes involving less than $50,000;
         (B)   90 days after receiving the appeal for disputes involving between $50,000 and $100,000; and

      (4)   The Chief Administrative Officer may require the contractor and the using department to provide additional information about the dispute.
      (5)   The Chief Administrative Officer must give the contractor and the using department a written decision approving or denying the dispute in whole or in part within 30 days after receiving the appeal or, if a hearing is held, within 30 days after receiving the hearing officer's report.  If the Chief Administrative Officer does not give the contractor and using department a written decision on the appeal within the applicable period, the dispute is denied.
   (d)    Appeal to court.
      (1)   The contractor may appeal the Chief Administrative Officer's decision to the Circuit Court under the Maryland Rules.
