Misconduct and Fraud

Reporting Suspected Fraud or Misconduct

The City of Gosnells does not tolerate corrupt or other improper conduct, including mismanagement of public resources, by its officers, employees and contractors.

Public Interest Disclosure Act 2003

The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2003 (PID Act) facilitates the disclosure of public interest information, and provides protection for those making disclosures and those who are the subject of disclosures. The PID Act requires public interest disclosures to be investigated and for appropriate action to be taken.

The City is committed to the aims and objectives of the PID Act. The PID Act recognises the value and importance of reporting as a means to identify and address wrongdoing.

We strongly support disclosures being made by employees about corrupt or other improper conduct. We also strongly support contractors and members of the community making disclosures about corrupt or improper conduct.

The PID Act makes it unlawful and the City does not tolerate any of its employees, contractors or subcontractors taking reprisal action against anyone who makes or proposes to make a public interest disclosure.

Employees and others are encouraged to contact the City’s PID Officers to seek guidance prior to making a disclosure.

City of Gosnells Code of Conduct

Public Sector Commission (PSC)

Anyone can report any reasonable suspicion of minor misconduct involving a public officer to the PSC.

Fact Sheet No.4 provides useful information for people who are thinking about reporting misconduct. The PSC encourages members of the public to call their advisory service on 08 6552 8888 and speak with a consultant before reporting.

The PSC’s preference is to receive allegations electronically via PSC’s online form. This helps the PSC to capture the information it needs in your own words and assists in quick processing.

Alternatively matters can be lodged in the following ways:

Post:  Locked Bag 3002, WEST PERTH WA 6872

You can also download the minor misconduct form and fill it in either electronically or by hand.
A hard copy of the report form can be posted to you with a prepaid reply envelope if requested. Please call 08 6552 8888 to arrange this.

Corruption and Crime Commission (CCC)

Anyone can report suspected serious misconduct by Western Australian public officers to the CCC. Fact Sheet No.3, Reporting Serious Misconduct, provides information about how to make a report and the subsequent process involved.

You are able to make an anonymous report of serious misconduct online, however anonymous reports are often difficult to assess.

If you have information that could be useful to the CCC, you can also contact a confidential phone line Toll Free on 1800 803 186.
