The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2018 (SA) (the Act) commenced on 1 July 2019, replacing the Whistleblowers Protection Act 1993 (SA).
The Act establishes a scheme that encourages and facilitates the appropriate disclosure of public interest information to certain persons or authorities. It provides protections for some persons who make an appropriate disclosure of public interest information in accordance with the Act and sets out processes for dealing with such disclosures.
An appropriate disclosure of public administration information concerning TAFE SA or a TAFE SA employee can be made to a TAFE SA Responsible Officer or to another relevant authority as defined by the Act.
The following documents will assist members of the public (including TAFE SA students) and TAFE SA staff who are considering making an appropriate disclosure of public interest information.
A person may make an appropriate disclosure of public interest information regarding TAFE SA or a TAFE SA public officer to a TAFE SA Responsible Officer via the following channels:

A person making a disclosure should consider:
Reporting obligations under the ICAC Act
Public officers are still obliged to comply with the reporting directions issued under the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) Act 2012 (SA).
Most public officers are obliged to report to the Office for Public Integrity (OPI) any matter that the public officer reasonably suspects involves corruption or serious or systemic misconduct or maladministration in public administration.
The Act does not alter those reporting obligations.
Where a report is made to the OPI about potential corruption, misconduct or maladministration in public administration, that report will be treated as an appropriate disclosure of public interest information under the PID Act.
For more information, please visit the Office of the Commissioner for Public Sector Employment website.
