Providing information about the results of the investigation


The Office of the Victorian Information Commissioner (OVIC) must inform the person who made the public interest disclosure about the results of their investigation.3 However, OVIC must not disclose information if they believe the disclosure would:

  • not be in the public interest or in the interests of justice; or
  • put a person’s safety at risk; or
  • cause unreasonable damage to a person’s reputation; or
  • prejudice any criminal proceedings or criminal investigations, or investigations by the Ombudsman, the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission or the Victorian Inspectorate; or
  • otherwise does not comply with statutory secrecy obligations or involve the unreasonable disclosure of information relating to the personal affairs of any person.4
