More information on SA Housing Authority Feedback and Complaints

The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2018 (PID Act) creates a new scheme from 1 July 2019 that:

  • encourages and facilitates the appropriate disclosure of public interest information to certain people or authorities
  • provides protections for those who make appropriate public interest disclosures
  • sets out processes for dealing with disclosures
  • ensures disclosures cannot be ignored.

Further information about the PID Act can be found at:

Making a public interest disclosure

Appropriate public information disclosures raise potential issues of corruption, misconduct or maladministration in public administration.

If you wish to make a public interest disclosure, via the SA Housing Authority, you can email one of our responsible officers who will treat your disclosure with confidentiality, and ensure it is investigated.
