The ombudsman’s function is to receive and investigate complaints about governmental administrative actions. The ombudsman has the power to investigate complaints for which no other remedy is available.
Any type of complaint can be made to the ombudsman, whether it concerns the legality of an administrative action, a decision or its merits. The ombudsman cannot investigate certain administrative actions and has the discretion to refuse to investigate in other circumstances.
