(1)  The Ombudsman Act 1974 makes provision in respect of the investigation of the conduct of certain public authorities including the Commission.
(2)  The Commission is not precluded by anything in this Act or by any other Act or law from providing information to the Ombudsman in connection with a preliminary inquiry under section 13AA of the Ombudsman Act 1974 or an investigation under that Act.
Note. Section 12 of the Ombudsman Act 1974 enables a person to make a complaint about a wide range of conduct of a public authority relating to administrative action or inaction by the public authority. Section 13AA of that Act enables the Ombudsman to conduct preliminary inquiries into such a complaint and section 13 of that Act enables the Ombudsman to investigate such conduct whether or not a complaint has been made if it appears to the Ombudsman that the conduct may be, for example, contrary to law.
