The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (‘PID Act’) commenced on 15 January 2014. The legislation creates a public interest disclosure scheme that promotes integrity and accountability in the Australian public sector 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.
The Commonwealth Ombudsman (and the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security for Intelligence agencies) has responsibility for the PID Scheme. Further information is available at https://www.ombudsman.gov.au/

- be made by a person who is or has been a public official
