The Alaska Office of the Ombudsman has a new website featuring easier ways for citizens to complain about government mistakes and a reference for directing citizens to other agencies that may be able to help them.
According to Ombudsman Linda Lord-Jenkins, the site also includes a list of completed investigations and the full public reports related to many investigations.
“Although we deal largely with confidential matters,” she said, “many of our final reports are available to the public after we remove the confidential information. We often criticize other agencies for being secretive with public information, so we surely want to model transparency and openness ourselves.”
The website is available at http://ombud.alaska.gov.
