Work, health and safety

Reporting problems at work

The museum is committed to the highest standards of ethical and accountable conduct, and to a culture that encourages reporting of wrongdoing. If you work in the public sector, whether as an employee or a provider, let us know if you see something that's not right – whether it's a safety problem, environmental damage, money being wasted or something illegal. Whistleblowers are protected by law. 

Determining breaches of the Code of Conduct and deciding sanctions

MoAD has established procedures for determining whether an employee or former employee has breached the APS Code of Conduct and the sanctions, if any, to impose.

Reporting fraud

If you are an employee or a member of the public and have information relating to fraud or suspected fraud that may involve the museum, please use one of the following methods to report it.

We take reports of fraud very seriously. All reports will be investigated. Your report will be confidential and you can stay anonymous. If you provide contact details, our Fraud Control Officer will contact you to confirm your report has been received.

Buying from small business 

We love to support small business. We advertise for goods and services at AusTender. We pay all correct invoices within 30 days, in line with the government's 30 day payment policy. 


Procurement is about how we get goods or services to run our business. Because we are a government-run organisation, there are rules about how we do this. 

If you'd like to do business with MoAD at Old Parliament House, check out AusTender for The Old Parliament House Annual Procurement Plan. You can also find more helpful information at Selling to the Australian Government
