Tex. Gov't Code Section 2152.060
Public Interest Information and Complaints


The commission shall prepare information of public interest describing the commission’s functions and the procedures by which complaints are filed with and resolved by the commission. The commission by rule shall establish methods by which consumers, service recipients, and persons contracting with the state under this subtitle are notified of the commission’s name, mailing address, and telephone number for directing complaints to the commission. The commission shall make the information available to the public and appropriate state agencies.


The commission shall maintain a file on each written complaint filed with the commission. The file must include:


the name of the person who filed the complaint;


the date the complaint is received by the commission;


the subject matter of the complaint;


the name of each person contacted in relation to the complaint;


a summary of the results of the review or investigation of the complaint; and


an explanation of the reason the file was closed, if the commission closed the file without taking action other than to investigate the complaint.


If a written complaint is filed with the commission that the commission has authority to resolve, the commission, at least quarterly and until final disposition of the complaint, shall notify the parties to the complaint of the complaint’s status unless the notice would jeopardize an undercover investigation.


The commission shall provide to the person filing the complaint and to each person who is a subject of the complaint a copy of the commission’s policies and procedures relating to complaint investigation and resolution.
