ORS 409.192¹
Policy on internal review of department decisions

It is the policy of the State of Oregon to ensure the integrity of the child welfare system. To this end it is necessary to provide for a process to allow for appropriate internal review of decisions made by the Department of Human Services. The state therefore requires that:

(1) Citizens shall be guaranteed the right to review of the actions and conduct of the department.

(2) Citizens shall be provided with a single place to file complaints concerning the actions and conduct of the department and shall be entitled to a response to the complaint within a reasonable period of time.

(3) Citizens shall not be subjected to reprisal for complaining of an action or conduct of the department. [1997 c.873 §28]
