Freedom of Information (FOI)
Victoria's Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) gives members of the public the right to apply for access to information held by Ministers, State Government departments, local councils, most semi-government agencies and statutory authorities.
The State Tolling Corporation (STC) complies with the FOI Act and has identified a Freedom of Information contact which can answer any question you may have regarding FOI requests relating to STC.

Public interest disclosures
The Public Interest Disclosures Act 2012 encourages and assists people in making disclosures of improper conduct by public officers and public bodies. The Act provides protection to people who make disclosures in accordance with the Act and establishes a system for the matters disclosed to be investigated and rectifying action to be taken.
STC does not tolerate improper conduct by employees, nor the taking of reprisals against those who come forward to disclose such conduct. It is committed to ensuring transparency and accountability in its administrative and management practices and supports the making of disclosures that reveal corrupt conduct, conduct involving a substantial mismanagement of public resources, or conduct involving a substantial risk to public health and safety or the environment.
STC will take all reasonable steps to protect people who make such disclosures from any detrimental action in reprisal for making the disclosure. It will also afford natural justice to the person who is the subject of the disclosure to the extent it is legally possible.
Reporting improper conduct
Disclosures of improper conduct or detrimental action by STC or any of its employees may be made to the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission:
Level 1, North Tower, 459 Collins Street
Melbourne, VIC 3000
