What happens in an agency review?

If an action is reviewable, you meet the criteria (eligibility and timeframes) and you apply for review, your agency head must:

  • review the action using their policies and procedures
  • attempt to resolve your concern
  • advise you in writing of the outcome, the reasons for the decision, and any action the agency intends to take
  • advise you of your right of review by the Merit Protection Commissioner.
