Independent Complaints Commissioner
The role of the Independent Complaints Commissioner (ICC) is twofold:
To assess whether the Independent Compensation Panel (ICP) has followed the correct process in assessing a claim made to it, and
To investigate unresolved complaints to ascertain whether the project has met its commitments and complied with agreed policies and procedures
If you are not happy with the decision on your claim to the ICP
If you are not satisfied with the response you receive from the ICP, you may contact the ICC, whose role is to ensure that the correct process has been followed.
If the ICC finds that the correct process has not been followed, they will send the claim back to the ICP for re-evaluation. They do not have the ability to overturn a decision.
If you want to escalate a complaint
If you write to Tideway to complain, Tideway Helpdesk will confirm receipt of your complaint and reply within ten working days of receiving your correspondence.
If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of the complaint then please let the Tideway Helpdesk know. Your complaint will be reviewed by a Tideway manager and the outcome will be provided within a further 20 working days.
At this stage, if you remain dissatisfied, you may raise your complaint with the ICC. Tideway will provide all the necessary information and relevant details to enable you to contact the ICC to have your complaint independently reviewed.
