Draft Public Interest Disclosures Policy

A hand filling out a form

Council is inviting community input into the Draft Public Interest Disclosures Policy.

Council is committed to encouraging and supporting the reporting of wrongdoing, and to protect those who make disclosures from any adverse action motivated by their report, keeping their identity confidential where possible. Council does not tolerate corrupt conduct, maladministration or serious waste of public money.

In accordance with the Public Interest Disclosures Act 1994 (PID Act), the Public Interest Disclosures Policy establishes an internal reporting system for Councillors and staff to report wrongdoing without fear of reprisal. It sets out who can report wrongdoing to in Council, what can be reported and how reports of wrongdoing will be dealt with by Council. It is also important that the community is also aware of the reporting mechanisms available to them for reporting fraudulent behaviour by Council officials.

For more information on this or to report fraudulent or corrupt conduct, please contact or visit the website of the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption (https://www.icac.nsw.gov.au/).
