 Public Interest Disclosures (PIDs) Minimize

A public interest disclosure (PID) is a disclosure about suspected wrongdoing in the public sector. Allegations about wrongdoing in the public sector, by public sector workers and members of the public, help to uncover corruption and other misuses of public resources. 

The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2010 (PID Act) encourages the disclosure of information about suspected wrongdoing in the public sector so that it can be properly evaluated and, if necessary, appropriately investigated.
