Providing feedback or making an enquiry
If you would like a response to your feedback/enquiry, please supply your name, and phone number or email address in the form at the end of this page.
IGEM collects personal information for the purpose of responding to your feedback/enquiry.
If your enquiry or feedback is of a current, operational nature, your information may be disclosed to other government agencies that have relevant information to enable an appropriate response.
Things we can’t help with
The Inspector-General cannot resolve individual issues, or provide personal advice and support.
Complaints about services provided by government organisations or emergency management agencies should be directed to the public sector body or agency you are complaining about (External link).
If you are not happy with the way your complaint has been handled, you can complain to the Victorian Ombudsman (External link).
Reporting corruption or misconduct
Information and complaints about corruption and misconduct can be made directly to IBAC – the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (External link).
The Public Interest Disclosures Act 2012 (External link) ensures that people who report improper conduct and corruption in the Victorian public sector (whistleblowers) can do so in the knowledge that they will be protected.
Protections include keeping the identity of the person reporting improper conduct confidential and protecting them from reprisals including bullying, harassment or legal action.
IBAC handles your information and personal details carefully and in accordance with relevant legislation. If you are very concerned about your privacy, you can choose to make a complaint or provide information anonymously.
You can also report corruption and misconduct to the Public Interest Disclosure Coordinator of the public sector body or agency (External link) you are complaining about. IGEM is not able to receive public interest disclosures.
