Ombudsman South Australia

The South Australian Ombudsman has the power to independently:

  • investigate the actions of government departments, statutory authorities and local government councils
  • receive information confidentially from a person who wishes to inform about possible improper or illegal actions in state or local government
  • review decisions made about the supply of information in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 1991.

Office for Public Integrity

If you suspect corruption, misconduct or maladministration in a public agency, including any local or state government agency or authority, or the police, you can report it to the Office for Public Integrity.

Any matter assessed as raising a potential issue of corruption may be investigated by the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption (ICAC), or another law enforcement agency.

Make a complaint or report online or phone 8207 1777.
