Give them until the middle of this week and then ring up and request a copy of your assessment report. You can do this before you receive the decision. It takes 6 - 10 days to arrive - sometimes sooner.

Hopefully, you will receive it before the decision. If you do and there are issues with it - you can write to the decision-maker.

If the decision comes out you can apply for a mandatory reconsideration and then you write to them challenging the assessment report.

rang today & they said the report had not yet been sent over... my assessment was last Tuesday so today being wed that's 8 days ago.... is that normal or reason for concern.

Hi Camily91

No, it's not a particular cause for concern. Some assessors are really quick about loading them up and others less so. A few weeks ago there were some system problems which only seemed to affect certain parts of the country and reports were taking a while to get loaded up. It's a bore but leave it a couple more days and try again.

oh well that's a relief! thanks.

Presumably the decision maker doesn't have yet then either

Hi Camly91

If it's not available on the system you're right to assume it's not yet with the Decision Maker.
