The Department aims to provide a good level of service to its customers but sometimes things do go wrong. When that happens, we should put matters right as quickly as possible. As part of that process, we should consider redress. Redress might include any of the following: a sincere apology; an explanation of what happened and what has been done to rectify matters; corrective action. However, if our action/inaction was sufficient to be considered maladministration and it had a negative impact on the customer we can also consider financial redress (special payments).
