We will protect those who speak up from detriment in line with our Reporting Wrongdoing Policy and legislation, take active steps to maintain the confidentiality of reports and take appropriate action to investigate and deal with wrongdoing.
The University has updated our Reporting Wrongdoing Policy to reflect the requirements of the NSW Public Interest Disclosures Act 2022. Our Reporting Wrongdoing Policy and the Public Interest Disclosures Act take effect from 1 October 2023.
At the University, wrongdoing refers to instances when a staff member or an affiliate may be involved in corrupt conduct, serious maladministration, government information contravention, privacy contravention or serious and substantial waste of public money.
Possible examples of serious wrongdoing include:
Anyone who suspects wrongdoing has occurred may report it to the University.
The University will take all reasonable steps to protect the reporter's identity, provided this does not hinder any investigation. The University does not tolerate detrimental action being threatened or taken against a person involved in a report of wrongdoing.
Some reports will qualify as public interest disclosures. Public interest disclosures are entitled to specific protections under the Public Interest Disclosures Act 2022.
The University's Reporting Wrongdoing Policy provides further information.
If you witness or become aware of one of the types of wrongdoing set out in the Policy, then you should report it to Internal Audit, one of the University’s disclosure officers or, if you are a staff member, to your manager.
Reports can be made to the University's Internal Audit team:
Reports can also be made:
You may choose to make a report orally or in writing.
You may also choose to make a report anonymously or non-anonymously. Making a report anonymously may limit the University’s ability to investigate the matter effectively and will mean that you cannot be informed of the outcome of any investigation.
Reports should include:
We take the issue of confidentiality seriously and reports of wrongdoing are treated confidentially. The University will take all reasonable steps to protect the identity of a reporter, provided that this does not hinder any investigation.
The reporter should also take all reasonable steps to maintain the confidentiality of their report.
The University’s Reporting Wrongdoing Policy provides more details.
Your report will be referred to Internal Audit to consider whether it is a public interest disclosure under the Public Interest Disclosure Act and to determine next steps. This might involve:

The University does not tolerate detrimental action being threatened or taken against a person involved in a report of wrongdoing. The University will take all reasonable steps to stop identified detrimental action and protect the person subjected to it.
Detrimental action does not include reasonable management action and other lawful actions.
More information is provided in the University’s Reporting Wrongdoing Policy.
Some, but not all, reports will be public interest disclosures. Public interest disclosures are entitled to specific protections under the Public Interest Disclosures Act and the University’s Reporting Wrongdoing Policy.
Anyone who manages staff or is a designated disclosure officer has an important role to play under our commitment to a culture of speaking up about wrongdoing. If you receive a report of wrongdoing, it’s critical that you treat it confidentially and refer it promptly to Internal Audit.
It is important that you do the following if you receive a report of wrongdoing or serious wrongdoing:
Details of manager’s and disclosure officer’s roles and responsibilities are set out in the Reporting Wrongdoing Policy.
If you have any questions you can also contact Internal Audit by email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Chief Internal Audit Officer on 02 8627 4991.
You can make a report to any of the disclosure officers listed, not just those who work at the University site or campus where you are based.
