Our stakeholders, including those individuals who come to us to blow the whistle on wrongdoing in the public sector or to speak up about experiencing reprisal, want to know that our work is producing results and that allegations of misconduct are treated quickly, efficiently and appropriately.
Our results to date underscore the breadth and range of our mandate, and speak to the importance and sensitivity of the responsibilities given to us by Parliament to deal with both disclosures of wrongdoing and complaints of reprisal.
You can also read summaries of some of the Public Sector Integrity Commissioner's other decisions on disclosures of wrongdoing and complaints of reprisals made to the Office.
The Office has implemented service standards as of April 1, 2013 to better hold itself to account to Parliamentarians, public servants and the general public. The following standards will be applied, barring exceptional circumstances:
- General inquiries will be responded to within one working day;
- A decision to investigate a disclosure of wrongdoing will be made within 90 days; and
- Investigations will be completed within one year of being launched.
