S&P Launches Ombuds Office; Details Still Scarce

The website for the new Standard & Poor’s Ombudsman went live yesterday. The homepage explains:
At S&P, our Ombudsman will listen to issues and concerns and ensure that all channels within the Company to resolve those issues have been effectively utilized. Although not every issue or concern can be resolved to the satisfaction of all parties, the processes to be followed by the Office of the Ombudsman will offer a balanced and independent approach to resolution.

There is no indication that the S&P Ombuds program is designed in compliance with IOA, USOA or any other standards of practice. (S&P Ombuds.)

  1. So, do I add the S&P Ombuds site to the Directory of Corporate Ombuds?
