Other complaint processes

Commonwealth agencies and departments complaint handling processes

Agencies and departments have established complaint handling processes that can usually be found on their website. Most will offer reviews of decisions or offer a better explanation of their decision.

The Commonwealth Ombudsman

Once you have completed the relevant agency or department complaint handling steps, and where you remain dissatisfied, the Commonwealth Ombudsman may be able to help resolve the issue by investigating the process the organisation has followed. 

The NACC Inspector 

The NACC is overseen by an independent Inspector. The Inspector will investigate corruption issues and complaints about the NACC, and also look at how the NACC uses its powers. For more information, see Accountability and Reporting.
