Public Interest Disclosure PolicyThe Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (PID) commenced on 15 January 2014.  The Act provides an avenue for public officials to make a disclosure that they reasonably believe meets the definition of disclosable conduct.  The Act also aims to promote the integrity and accountability of the Commonwealth sector by:

  • encouraging the disclosure of information by public officials about suspected wrongdoing in the public sector;
  • ensuring that public officials are supported and protected from adverse consequences; and
  • ensuring that disclosures are properly investigated.


What is disclosable conduct?


This means conduct by an agency, public official or a contracted Commonwealth service provider that:

  • contravenes a law
  • is corrupt
  • perverts the course of justice
  • results in wastage of public funds or property
  • is an abuse of public trust
  • unreasonably endangers health and safety or endangers the environment
  • is misconduct relating to scientific research, analysis or Advice
  • is maladministration, including conduct that is unjust, oppressive or negligent

Who can make a difference?


A current of former ‘public official’ can disclose that they believe on reasonable grounds tends to show disclosable conduct.  This broad term includes Australian Government public servants and parliamentary service employees, members of the Defence force, staff and directors of Commonwealth companies, statutory office holders and staff of Commonwealth contracted service providers.

Protections for the person who makes a difference


The identity of a person who makes a difference will be kept confidential as far as practicable.  It is an offence to provide identifying information about a person who makes a disclosure without their consent unless authorised by the PID Act.
