Public Interest Disclosure

The Public Interest Disclosure Act came into effect on 1 July 2003. The Act facilitates the disclosure of public interest information and providing protection for those who make disclosures and those who are the subject of disclosures. It provides a system for the matters disclosed to be investigated and for appropriate action to be taken. If you believe that something is wrong with the way a government official or public authority or government contractor is acting or going to act, it is in the public interest that you talk to someone who can do something about it.  The Public Interest Disclosure (PID) Officer for the Shire of Bridgetown-Greenbushes is the Executive Manager Community Services, Elizabeth Denniss. 

If you are considering making a public interest disclosure please review this document which outlines what you need to know and consider prior to contacting the Public Disclosure Officer.

The PID Officer is required to abide by the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2003 Code of Conduct and Integrity and to ensure that any disclosures both in electronic and hardcopy forms are kept strictly confidential and in a secure location.
