Amberley Gavel’s Review Officers have been selected to provide clients of the Program with integrity, a breadth of experience, and geographic dispersion.
The closed meeting investigation process requires them to utilize knowledge of the technical procedures that Municipal Councils and staff must follow, and their experience gained as municipal professionals in order to understand the public interests, and political and administrative processes in play.
Review Officers are knowledgeable about the specific requirements of the Municipal Act 2001, including the limits of the investigator role. Training will be continually updated.
The peer review process employed by Amberley Gavel for each investigator report will take advantage of the different skills available within the Review Officer group in order that each complaint is reviewed with the independence, impartiality, confidentiality and credible investigative process required by the Municipal Act 2001.
Review Officer assignments will be made recognizing and avoiding any known potential for conflicts of interest. Amberley Gavel will appreciate input from municipalities should they identify a situation whereby the assignment of a particular member of the Review Officer panel might be either preferred or inappropriate.
