request for binding arbitration, the appraisal district shall complete
the appropriate tasks using the comptroller's online arbitration system
or in the manner set out below if using the paper-based arbitration
system as follows:

of §9.4252(f) of this title have been met;
(2) assign a unique arbitration number to each request;
(3) complete and sign that portion of the comptroller's

each Request for Binding Arbitration form, the accompanying deposit,
and the ARB order (as well as the appointment of agent form 50-791,
