The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (Cth) (Act), which establishes a new public interest disclosure scheme for the Commonwealth public sector, comes into force on 15 January 2014.

- agency staff and contractors understand their rights and their obligations under the Act; and
- they have procedures in place to facilitate public interest disclosures.
