Ombudsman Official

The role of the ombudsman structure is to act as an oversight and appeals function for the community at a large.

The ombudsman structure will be the appeals option for teams that have been dissolved, or individuals who have been removed from a position due to breach of COI or by vote of no confidence.

Code of Conduct (CoC) is also handled by the ombudsman structure. If anyone is seen or believed to have breached the Code of Conduct they can report it to the ombudsman structure that will then deal with it and assess it. If it is found to be assessed as there has been a breach of the CoC the ombudsman can put the case on the next meeting of the Board of Directors for handling.
