Hello All,

In terms of  this statement:

“Concern was raised that the Ombudsman is not sufficiently equipped and knowledgeable to do substantive evaluation. It is also suggested that an independent party, such as the Ombudsman, provide an initial assessment to the Board as to the merit of any and all Reconsideration Requests. “

It is worth considering that the Ombudsman is a function rather than just a single person.   At the moment there is more than one person involved in providing the Ombudsman function.   In addition to Chris LaHatte, Herb Waye has also provide adjunct services.

I suggest using the text "Ombudsman Function" where references are made to the Ombudsman in the CCWG report. 

It is possible in future that we increase the number of people and skills available in the Ombudsman Function to meet the needs specified in the CCWG proposal, and as a result of further improvements resulting from work stream 2.
