For corporate information on a range of topics about the Organ and Tissue Authority (OTA) as a Government Agency, please select a link below.
The OTA is governed by the Financial Management and Accountability (FMA) Act and bound by legislated reporting obligations. This includes reporting of Grants, Contracts and Departmental files, as well as information about the OTA’s legal services expenditure and Agency Multicultural Plan.
The broad objective of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) is to give the Australian community access to information held by the Government of the Commonwealth.
In order to do this, individuals can submit a request to a Government Agency for access to documents the agency holds and obtain copies of those documents. However, there are certain exemptions prescribed in the FOI Act which restrict the amount of documentation released.
- Further information about the FOI process (including how to make a request to the OTA under the FOI Act) can be obtained through the Freedom of Information page.
The Public Interest Disclosure Scheme recognises the importance of exposing wrongdoing in the public sector. It provides broad protections for people that make reports of serious wrongdoing, provides legal remedies if those individuals suffer reprisals as a result of those reports and creates a standardised framework for how this type of disclosure must be handled, investigated and reported on.
This page provides information on current job vacancies, recruitment processes and employment conditions with the Organ and Tissue Authority.
