*Are you a NSW public official?

Definition of public official:

A public official is defined in the ICAC Act as an individual having public official functions or acting in a public official capacity in NSW. Employees of NSW public authorities such as local councils, state departments or statutory authorities and members of certain boards are considered public officials. In some circumstances, private contractors or consultants are considered public officials, depending on their duties.

More information is available at About corruption and What is a NSW public official or public authority.


*Consent to disclose my identity

Being a public official, your complaint may constitute a public interest disclosure under the Public Interest Disclosures Act. In the case of public interest disclosures, your written consent is usually required before the ICAC can reveal your identity to another agency.

If I consent, I understand the ICAC will not necessarily identify me as the source of this information even if I consent. If it later becomes necessary to identify me to another agency, and I have consented to being identified, the ICAC may disclose that I am the source of this information. I will not be notified if/when this occurs.

If I do not consent to being identified as the source of this information, I understand the ICAC will seriously consider any objections I may have, but that there may be compelling public interest reasons to identify me despite my objections. If this happens I will be notified of this decision.
