Wilson Taylor is TVA’s ombudsman for external stakeholders.

TVA’s ombudsman provides an independent channel for mediating stakeholder complaints or concerns about TVA activities that affect the public.

What does the ombudsman do? 

  • He complements and strengthens TVA’s existing avenues for working with the public. 
  • He works collaboratively with TVA organizations to resolve complaints.
  • He takes up matters at the request of stakeholders who have completed complaint processes already in place. If a complaint can be addressed through an existing channel, it will be referred to that process.

What does the ombudsman not do?

  • He does not replace existing processes.
  • He does not independently resolve disputes.
  • He does not handle complaints from customers or suppliers.
