Current investigations

Each year, the Ombudsman undertakes about 30 formal investigations. Some investigations are announced publicly, while others are conducted under strict confidentiality.

The Ombudsman has announced she is investigating:

Councils' use of third party contractors to review parking infringements

Credit card use at Warrnambool City Council

Once each of these investigations is completed, the Ombudsman will table a report in the Victorian Parliament and publish an investigation report on this website.

In addition to the above, the Ombudsman is also conducting investigations resulting from Public Interest Disclosures . These investigations are confidential until and if a report is tabled in the Parliament.
