Any individual or organisation (including a government body) may lodge a complaint with the Public Relation Officer(PRO).
The first step
Those contemplating making a complaint are encouraged to discuss their concerns with the District Secretariat. This will help to clarify whether the concerns fall within the scope of competitive neutrality policy and may allow for the resolution of matters without the need for a formal investigation. Formal complaints must be lodged in writing, preferably using the Competitive Neutrality Complaint Form available from the District Secretariat. An Office staff is available to discuss the preparation of a complaint.
Information needed for a complaint
While there is no specific information that must be provided to support a complaint, the case for initiating an investigation and recommending changes to competitive neutrality arrangements will have more weight if supported by facts and arguments. Thus, complainants are encouraged to describe their concerns and the effects of any perceived breach of competitive neutrality arrangements on their activities.
To facilitate the investigation process and promote transparency, the District secretariat generally makes written material submitted in relation to a complaint available to other interested parties. However, it will accept commercially or otherwise sensitive material on an 'in confidence' basis.
