What we help with

We can give you advice, clarification, or training on:

  • the OIA or LGOIMA
  • good administration and decision making
  • proactive release of information
  • development of policies and procedures
  • managing unreasonable complainant conduct
  • developing or changing your internal complaints handling process.

How to ask for help

Contact us to ask for advice or training. We can provide general advice on specific OIA or LGOIMA requests, but we won't tell you what decision to take in case the Ombudsman has to review it later.
