Corporate Information

For corporate information on a range of topics about the Organ and Tissue Authority (OTA) as a Commonwealth Government agency, please select a link below.

Accountability and Reporting

The OTA is governed by the Public Governance, performance and Accountability Act 2013 and is 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.

Freedom of Information

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.

Public Interest Disclosure

The Public Interest Disclosure Scheme recognises the importance of exposing wrongdoing in the public sector. It provides broad protections for people who make reports of suspected 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.


This page provides information on current job vacancies, recruitment processes and employment conditions within the OTA.
