Scope – Receiving Information

A robust and effective disclosure system should ensure the person receiving the disclosure:

  • Has accurate information, by ensuring the disclosure provides relevant material
  • Is able to understand the information and any conflict of interest
  • Know who to forward (or not forward to) the disclosure to, for the preliminary assessment, so they can:
    • Identify the potential issues
    • Make a preliminary assessment of issues
    • Identify potential conflicts of interest
    • Make an initial recommendation to investigate, not investigate or undertake another course of action
