The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (PID Act) came into effect on 15 January 2014. The purpose of the Public Interest Disclosure Scheme is to provide an avenue for public officials to report suspected wrong doing in the Australian public sector.

The scheme provides for employees (including former employees) of the ANAO and contracted service providers to the ANAO, to make a public interest disclosure of suspected wrongdoing relating to any public official, and provides for any public officials and former public officials to make a public interest disclosure of suspected wrongdoing relating to ANAO activities or ANAO officials, either anonymously or openly, in writing or verbally, to an authorised officer in the ANAO. The ANAO has an obligation to assess the disclosure and decide whether to investigate the matter or not.

The ANAO’s Authorised Officer's are:
