15. Once the audit or investigation has been concluded, the Public Protector reports the findings to the highest ranking administrative official of the public body concerned or, if warranted by the circumstances, to the minister responsible for that body. The Public Protector makes the recommendations the Public Protector considers appropriate and may ask to be informed, within a specified time, of the corrective measures taken to implement them.
However, in the case of a public body referred to in paragraph 9 of section 2, the Public Protector reports the Public Protector’s findings to the Minister of Families and, if warranted by the circumstances, to the board of directors of the public body concerned or to the natural person who is the holder of a day care centre permit.
In the case of a public body referred to in paragraph 9.1 of section 2, the Public Protector may, in addition to the communication provided for in the first paragraph and if warranted by the circumstances, report the findings and send the recommendations to the board of directors of the public body and to any local municipality having ties with that body if the latter is not a local municipality.
If the Public Protector considers it appropriate, the Public Protector may inform the person who made the disclosure of any follow-up given to the disclosure.
