Public interest disclosures

The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (PID Act) promotes the integrity and accountability of the Commonwealth public sector by creating a framework for facilitating the reporting of suspected wrongdoing and ensuring timely and effective investigation of reports.

The public interest disclosure scheme supplements existing avenues for complaints and investigations, and provides support and protection to persons who make disclosures under the Act.

More information about the public interest disclosure scheme is available from the Commonwealth Ombudsman website.

Making a public interest disclosure

To email your public interest disclosure or request assistance in making a disclosure, contact the RIC’s PID Contact Officer by emailing PID@ric.gov.au.

Alternatively, you can send your public interest disclosure, marked Confidential, to:

Public Interest Disclosure Contact Officer
c/- Regional Investment Corporation
PO Box 653
Orange NSW 2800

Your identity and contact details, as well as the content of your public interest disclosure, will be protected in accordance with the PID Act.

If you wish to remain anonymous this should be clearly stated in your correspondence. If it is necessary to appoint an Investigation Delegate to make further enquiries about your disclosure, your name and contact details will not be disclosed. It should be noted that, in many cases, contacting a discloser to obtain further details or clarification can assist the investigation.

The RIC's Privacy Policy outlines its personal information handling practices, including details on how to access or correct the personal information that we hold about you. It also contains information about how you can contact the department, and how you can make a complaint about a breach of our obligations under the Privacy Act 1988.
