Public interest disclosure

The City of Joondalup does not tolerate corrupt or other improper conduct, including mismanagement of public resources, in the exercise of the public functions of the City of Joondalup and its officials, employees and suppliers/contractors. The City’s Fraud, Corruption and Misconduct Policy is a commitment to a zero tolerance approach to fraudulent and corrupt conduct.

The City is committed to the aims and objectives of the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2003. It recognises the value and importance of contributions of staff to enhance administrative and management practices and strongly supports disclosures being made as to corrupt or other improper conduct. The City’s Statement of Business Ethics provides guidance to business partners, contractors and suppliers on the values and ethical standards the City upholds and expects in return.

The City will take all reasonable steps to provide protection to those who make such disclosures from any detrimental action in reprisal for the making of a public interest disclosure. The City does not tolerate any of its officials, employees or suppliers engaging in acts of victimisation or reprisal against those who make public interest disclosures.

To show this commitment, the City is currently improving its public interest disclosure function and will update this web page when improvements are made.

If you wish to make a disclosure or for further information call the City on 9400 4433 to discuss the process before completing a public interest disclosure form.
