IBAC manages your personal information carefully and in accordance with relevant legislation. If you make a complaint and IBAC determines to refer your complaint to another agency, the information you provide to IBAC, including your personal details, will be forwarded to that agency for the purposes of addressing your complaint.
You may make a complaint anonymously. If you choose this option, your personal information will not be available to anyone, including IBAC. However, if you choose to make a complaint anonymously, any investigation by IBAC or another agency may be limited. This is because we cannot contact you to obtain more information, or discuss the matter with you.
Legal protections when making a complaint
IBAC may decide your complaint is a protected disclosure (or whistleblower complaint). All complaints to IBAC are assessed for protected disclosure eligibility. This means your matter is subject to greater protections and restrictions. For more information, please see What is a protected disclosure?
Anyone can complain to us about public sector corruption and police misconduct. Find out how.
