About the Public Interest Disclosure Act

The PID Act aims to ensure openness and accountability in government to:

  • facilitate and encourage people to make disclosures of public interest information
  • provide protection for those who make disclosures
  • provide protection for those who are subject of a disclosure

The PID Act provides a system for the matters disclosed to be investigated and for appropriate action to be taken.
