Requesting advice

Who will see the Integrity Commissioner’s advice?

Any advice provided by the Integrity Commissioner is confidential and is exempt from disclosure under schedule 1, section 6 of the Right to Information Act 2009. Advice sought about another person cannot be released unless compelled by another Act.

Certain disclosures are authorised, and in some cases required, under the Integrity Act 2009 (Qld). These are set out in chapter 3, part 4 of that Act.

What happens after a designated person receives advice?

If the Integrity Commissioner advises that a designated person has a significant conflict of interest, the designated person should take steps to resolve that conflict.

If the designated person fails to resolve an actual, or perceived, and significant ethics or integrity issues within five days of receiving advice from the Integrity Commissioner, the Integrity Commissioner must give the Premier or other relevant person a copy of the advice documents.

If the designated person follows the Integrity Commissioner’s advice to resolve a conflict of interest issue, the designated person will not be liable in a civil proceeding or under an administrative process for any actions the designated officer takes in accordance with that advice to resolve the conflict.
