Questions about timing and deadlines

I don't have any comments but I do have some questions:

1. What date will DMAS use as the date of delivery for electronic notices?

2. DMAS considers documents delivered after 5:00 pm on the due date to be untimely.  How are documents delivered after 5:00 pm on other days treated?

3. If a courier delivers properly addressed documents to someone at DMAS other than the Appeals Division and the delivery is date-stamped as received, does DMAS consider that to be filed on the date it was stamped?

4. If a party doesn't attend an appeal hearing the case is dismissed, but what if a party is late - will DMAS dismiss that case?  What if the party is delayed or has an emergency and calls DMAS - will DMAS dismiss that case?

Thank you.
