Public interest disclosures

The Public interest Disclosures Act 2012 (Vic.) is designed to help people make disclosures about improper conduct within the public sector without fear of reprisal. The Act aims to make the public sector more open and accountable by encouraging people to make disclosures and protecting them when they do.

The Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV) is committed to the aims and objectives of the Act. MAV does not tolerate improper conduct by its employees, executives, officers or members, nor the taking of reprisals against those who come forward to disclose such conduct.or the taking of reprisals against those who disclose such conduct.

The MAV is not a public body to which disclosures may be made. Disclosures of improper conduct or detrimental action relating to the MAV need to be made to the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC).

More information about public interest disclosure and the Public Interest Disclosures Act 2012 (Vic.) is available at the Independent Broad-Based Anti-Corruption Commission (IBAC) website.

The MAV has procedures for protecting people who make disclosures from detrimental action by Museums Victoria or its staff, which are available below.
