The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 requires that agencies notify the Ombudsman of an allocation of a disclosure, and whenever it makes a decision not to investigate a disclosure, or to stop investigating a disclosure.
Where an investigation cannot be completed within 90 days of allocation, agencies can request the Ombudsman grant an extension time to carry out a PID investigation. Forms are provided to facilitate these notifications and requests:
- Notification of allocation (Word)
- Notification of decision not to investigate (Word)
- Request for extension of time (Word)
Email completed notification forms to firstname.lastname@example.org.
