Public Interest Disclosures

Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (PID Act) commences on 15 January 2014.

The legislation creates a public interest disclosure scheme that promotes integrity and accountability in the Australian public sector. It does this by:

  • encouraging and facilitating the disclosure of information by public officials about suspected wrongdoing in the public sector
  • ensuring that public officials who make public interest disclosures are supported and protected from adverse consequences
  • ensuring that disclosures by public officials are properly investigated and dealt with.

S59 of the PID Act requires the Official Secretary (as a Principal Officer under the PID Act) to establish procedures for facilitating and dealing with Public Interest Disclosures relating to the Office of the Official Secretary to the Governor-General.

Authorised Officers

For the purpose of section 36 of the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 the Official Secretary has appointed Authorised Officers for handling PIDs made to the office about the office. These are identified in the Instrument of Appointment.
