Public Interest Disclosure

The Public Sector Commissioner in accordance with s.21 of the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2003 (PID Act) requires authorities to develop internal procedures in relation to Public Interest Disclosures Under s. 23(1)(e) and s. 23(2) and publish this procedure for access by the general public.  These procedures must be consistent with the PID Act Guidelines. 

Important note

While information provided in these guidelines and the supporting information for principal executive officers and proper authority (PID Officer) reflects the requirements of the PID Act, there will be, from time to time, circumstances that raise complex questions of law, where there is a real possibility of litigation or where the matter is otherwise highly contentious. In these cases, further legal or other professional advice should be sought before taking action.
