The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (Cwlth) (PID Act) started on 15 January 2014.
The Act promotes the integrity and accountability of the Australian Government public sector by:
This is conduct by an agency, public official or a contracted Australian Government service provider that:
A 'public official' (current or former) can disclose information they believe on reasonable grounds shows disclosable conduct. The term includes:
The identity of anyone who discloses information will be kept confidential as far as practicable. It is an offence to provide information that can identify them without their consent, unless authorised by the PID Act.
Under the PID Act, every Australian Government agency must appoint authorised officers to handle public interest disclosures. Disclosures can also be made to a supervisor or manager, who must pass it to an authorised officer.
