Dear National Disability Insurance Agency,

Please provide a copy of the current NDIA Whistleblower policy and all prior versions. For clarity, that is all NDIA whistleblower policy/ies from 2013 until Jun 2021.

For context, The Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC) advises [1] that: "The Corporations Act 2001 (Corporations Act) provides a consolidated whistleblower protection regime for Australia’s corporate sector. The regime requires public companies, large proprietary companies and proprietary companies that are trustees of registrable superannuation entities to have a whistleblower policy and make the policy available to their officers and employees.""[2:4].

The Agency does not seem to have exemption under recent adjustments [3]

Yours faithfully,

Shirley
