Overview This Act seeks to provide protection for public officials who make reports/disclosures concerning corrupt conduct, maladministration and waste in the public sector. The University is a "public authority" under the Act, and is required to take every reasonable measure to ensure the confidentiality of the identity of a person who makes a protected disclosure. This Act prescribes a number of requirements that are to be followed by the University in the event that a protected disclosure is made.

Staff who make a public interest disclosure (PID) in accordance with the PID Rule and Procedure will be protected in accordance with the Act.
