Where the decision relates to an interim stage of a selection process, the request for review must be received within 4 working days. ·                Any extension of these time limits will only be granted in the most exceptional of circumstances and will be at the sole discretion of the Chief Executive.·                The outcome must generally be notified to the candidate within 20 working days of receipt of the complaint or request for review. The candidate will receive the outcome of the review by means of a written report.·                Should a candidate be dissatisfied with the outcome of the initial review, he/she may request a review by a decision arbitrator of the conduct of the initial review. Review by the decision arbitrator:The decision arbitrator is appointed by the Chief Executive. The decision arbitrator is unconnected with the selection process and he/she will adjudicate on requests for review in cases where a candidate is not satisfied with the outcome of the initial review. The decision of the decision arbitrator in relation to such matters is final. ·                A request made to the decision arbitrator must be received within 7 working days of the notification of the outcome of the initial review;·                The outcome of the investigation must be notified to the candidate in the form of a written report within 10 working days. Where a candidate believes that an aspect of the process breached the CPSA’s Code of Practice, he/she can have it investigated under Section 8 of the Code of Practice.
