Part 6: State of the Service Report
Public Interest Disclosure
The Office is a ‘disclosure officer’ under the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2012, which means we can receive disclosures and may investigate disclosable conduct that relates to the head of a public sector entity or service.
We do not have oversight responsibility for the Public Interest Disclosure (PID) Scheme. This rests with the ACT Integrity Commissioner. However, the Office can take complaints about and review the handling of PIDs by ACT public sector agencies.
There were no disclosures or PID handling complaints received during 2020–21 and 2 general PID enquiries were received. The Integrity Commissioner did not refer any disclosures to the Office during the relevant reporting period.
