Section 6(4) of the Act requires each public body to publish a list of designated public officials of the body.  The purpose of the list is :

  • to allow members of the public to identify those persons who are designated public officials
  • to be used as a resource for lobbyists filing a return to the Register who may need to source a designated public official’s details.

The secretariat for the Commission for Public Service Appointments is provided by the Office of the Ombudsman. Details of the Designated Public Official for the Office of the Ombudsman is available on the Ombudsman's website.
