Information for agencies
The Ombudsman is not an advocate for complainants. We act impartially and independently of both the agency we investigate and the complainants whose grievances we investigate.
We have developed guidelines and other resources to assist complaint handlers and our staff are always available to provide advice and guidance to agencies on how their policies, procedures and complaint handling processes can be improved.
We also have an important role in relation to systems within agencies for dealing with public interest disclosures made by employees.
We also provide training for staff of agencies on complaint handling and investigation techniques.
