Under the Ombudsman Act 2001, a strategic review of the Office must be conducted at least every seven years. The Governor-in-Council appoints the reviewer as per the agreed terms of reference.
At the end of the review process, the reviewer provides a draft report to the Ombudsman and the Minister. The Ombudsman then has 21 days to respond to the report.
The report is then finalised and presented to the Ombudsman and the Minister. The Minister must table the report in parliament within 3 sitting days after receiving it. The Ombudsman is responsible for implementing the recommendations. The Ombudsman presents status reports to the Legal Affairs and Community Safety Committee at least once a year and provides a summary in the annual report until all recommendations are implemented.
