Public Interest Disclosures Act 2012

The Public Interest Disclosures Act 2012 (formerly the Protected Disclosures Act 2012) encourages and facilitates making disclosures of improper conduct by public bodies or public sector employees and protects people who report improper conduct from reprisal. Public bodies or public officers include TCV and its employees.

Protections include keeping the identity of the person reporting improper conduct confidential and protecting them from reprisals including bullying, harassment or legal action.

Treasury Corporation of Victoria is committed to the aims and objectives of the Act.

TCV does not tolerate improper conduct by its employees, officers or directors, nor the taking of reprisals against those who come forward to disclose such conduct.

A disclosure of improper conduct by TCV or its employees should be made directly to the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC). Under the Public Interest Disclosures Act TCV is not able to receive public interest disclosures.

TCV has established procedures to:

  • make TCV employees and other persons aware that they can make disclosures under the Act directly to IBAC
  • keep a discloser's identity and the content of the disclosure confidential
  • manage the welfare of disclosers including protecting them from detrimental action.

A copy of the procedures can be found here.

If you make a disclosure about improper conduct on the part of TCV or an employee or officer or director of TCV and want that disclosure to be protected under the Act, you need to make the disclosure directly to IBAC.
