Public interest disclosures

An effective system for dealing with public interest disclosures helps to safeguard the integrity of Queensland’s public sector.

Our public interest disclosure procedure (PDF, 184KB) explains what constitutes a public interest disclosure and how to lodge a public interest disclosure.

A public interest disclosure is when someone reports potential wrongdoing in the public sector in order to protect the public interest. Public interest disclosures shine a light on suspected wrongdoings in the public sector so that:

  • public sector organisations can better identify wrongdoing
  • suspected wrongdoing can be properly evaluated and investigated
  • action can be taken to fix problems
  • systems can be implemented to reduce the risk of wrongdoing.

Any person, including a public sector officer, can make a public interest disclosure.
