Summary Note "In order to maintain confidence in EPAC among those who work in the Department and within school communities, it is necessary for EPAC to be seen to act in a fair, impartial, consistent, transparent and timely fashion, and in a manner that respects the procedural rights of those whom it is investigating and disciplining. Over time, criticism has been levelled at EPAC from a variety of sources. Those criticisms have included accusations of: procedural unfairness; lack of timeliness; lack of consistency in decision-making; inadequate investigations; confirmation bias against persons subject of allegations (PSOAs); poor communication with PSOAs, alleged victims (AVs), and school managers; failure to provide support to Principals and Directors Educational Leadership (DELs) in local management of investigations; inadequate resourcing; and a failure to act fairly and impartially in the investigation of allegations of misconduct.
The staff of EPAC consist of well-intentioned people wanting to do a complex and highly pressured job in a professional manner under difficult circumstances. This Review has identified some measures that, if adopted, will go a long way to overcoming the criticisms that have been levelled at EPAC." - p. 6.
