Public Interest Disclosure
The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (PID Act) commenced on 15 January 2014 and establishes a new legislative scheme for the investigation of allegations of serious wrongdoing in the Commonwealth public sector.
If a current or former public official suspects that an incidence of wrongdoing has occurred at the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA), it may be reported under the provisions of the Public Interest Disclosure (PID) Act 2013.
Disclosures should be made to one of AMSA’s appointed Authorised Officers:
Manager Governance, Corporate Services
Phone: +61 (2) 6279 5615
Mobile: +61 (0) 407570645
Manager Human Resources, Corporate Services
Phone: +61 (2) 6279 5671
Mobile: +61 421 952 531
Disclosures can be made orally or in writing, and can be made anonymously. Any disclosure under the PID Act will be treated confidentially by AMSA, and the person making the disclosure is afforded a number of protections. For more information on the PID Act see the Commonwealth Ombudsman’s website.
