The National Gallery of Victoria is committed to the aims and objectives of the Whistleblowers Protection Act 2001 (the Act). It does not tolerate Improper Conduct by its people, nor the taking of reprisals against those who come forward to disclose such conduct. It will also afford natural justice to the person who is the subject of the disclosure.
The NGV recognises the value of transparency and accountability in its administrative and management practices, and supports the making of disclosures that reveal corrupt conduct, conduct involving a substantial mismanagement of public resources, or conduct involving a substantial risk to public health and safety or the environment.
The NGV will take all reasonable steps to protect people who make such disclosures from any detrimental action in reprisal for making the disclosure. It will also afford natural justice to the person who is the subject of the disclosure.
