To ensure the Appeal process is meaningful and transparent it would be helpful to have the process set out in the rule. For example, what standard of review will be used to determine if a finding should be overturned? It would also be helpful to know who completes the appeals, is the person outside of the TAS’s chain of command and therefore a neutral reviewer? Is there a time frame for an appeal decision so an agency knows when to expect an outcome? Even if an appeal is not overturned, is there a mechanism to allow for certain corrections to the original finding that may have been done in error? Finally, as there is a mechanism for an agency to attach an addendum if they do not appeal, could this also be included as an option if an appeal is requested by not overturned?
