Omit “or special officer”.
Explanatory note
Item [4] of the proposed amendments omits a provision that allows the Ombudsman to appoint an officer of the Ombudsman to be a special officer, to whom the Ombudsman can delegate functions. The provision is unnecessary as, in practice, the Ombudsman delegates functions to the Assistant Ombudsman, who is deemed a special officer under section 8A(2), and officers of the Ombudsman, any of whom can be appointed a special officer. The role of special officer inserts an unnecessary bureaucratic step in the process of creating delegations and has no other purpose under the Ombudsman Act 1974. Items [1]–[3], [5]–[8] and [10]–[12] make consequential amendments.
Item [9] of the proposed amendments enables the Ombudsman to orally inform a complainant about the Ombudsman’s decision in relation to a complaint if the complaint was made orally, unless the complainant asks the Ombudsman to inform the complaint in writing. The proposed amendment also makes it clear that the Ombudsman may inform the complainant about the decision in writing if the Ombudsman considers it appropriate in the circumstances.
