Important changes to the Office for Public Integrity

The Office for Public Integrity became an independent stand-alone body on Thursday 7 October 2021. We appreciate your patience during this transition period, and will respond to any queries as soon as possible. More information will be added to this website shortly.

Making a complaint is easy and important. Our online forms will guide you through the process.

The forms do not have a save option, so it is important to gather all relevant information before you start.

Things to consider

Some things you might consider:

  • Are you clear about who and what you are making a complaint or report about?
  • Can you provide names and positions of people involved in the conduct?
  • Can you provide names of people who may also have information about the conduct?
  • Can you provide details about the conduct including when and where it happened and when you became aware of it?
  • Do you have information about any documented evidence?
  • Has this matter been reported elsewhere and do you know the outcome?
