Public Interest Disclosure (PID)


The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (PID Act) commenced on 14 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.
