You'll find in a number of non-fatal accidents the NTSB will not travel and delegate the FAA to perform the investigation. A NTSB IIC is still assigned to oversee the investigation, determine the results, manage the reports, etc. The same investigative steps are still performed and usually by the same people in these types of events. However, there seems to be an increased use of this delegative authority with the backlog from covid.
