If IPSA determines that a claim submitted by an MP is to be refused or that only part of the amount claimed is to be allowed then, in the first instance, an MP should request IPSA to reconsider their determination. If, following review, the decision remains unaltered, an MP may request a further review of IPSA’s determination by the Compliance Officer.
In the event that the Compliance Officer upholds the original determination by IPSA, the MP may instigate an appeal to the First-tier Tribunal.
A review request should be submitted via e-mail or in writing to:
Compliance Officer for IPSA,
When submitting a request for a review an MP, or their proxy, should provide the following information:
- Claim number(s);
- Details of IPSA’s review decision and an explanation of the grounds for contesting that decision;
- Details of what they believe the correct payments should be and how the figure was arrived at (if relevant);
- Any supporting documentation or details of where this can be found.
