Complaints about Misconduct or Misuse of Public Resources
There are protections for Whistleblowers under the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2003 (WA). Making a Public Interest Disclosure is a serious matter and needs to be fully considered beforehand.
All government agencies have designated officers to manage Public Interest Disclosures. These officers may be the most appropriate person to contact in the first instance.
The Office of the Auditor General is the appropriate authority to receive Public Interest Disclosures that relate to substantial unauthorised or irregular use of, or substantial mismanagement of, public resources. For other kinds of disclosures, the OAG may not be the correct authority. More information about making a Public Interest Disclosure is available for download from the Public Sector Commission website.
If, after considering this information, you are considering making a Public Interest Disclosure to the Auditor General, phone (08) 6557 7500 and ask to speak to a Public Interest Disclosure Officer about the procedure for the lodging of Disclosures. To meet the confidentiality requirements of the legislation, Public Interest Disclosures should not be sent by email or fax.
