Other places to lodge a complaint

In addition to the Office for Public Integrity (OPI), South Australia has an inquiry agency, the Ombudsman, who can take your complaint about South Australian public administration.

If your complaint does not concern public administration in South Australia, for example if it concerns a Commonwealth agency, a private business, or a member of the public, then you may wish to pursue the matter via an alternative avenue.
