As a result of the National Integrity Framework and the changing landscape in which Play by the Rules (PBTR) operates, a National Review of the PBTR Member Protection Information Officer (MPIO) Program was undertaken in 2022/23.

Over the same time period, a review of the National Integrity Framework was also undertaken by Sport Integrity Australia, with updated integrity policies released in July 2023.

As a result, the timeframe to implement the MPIO Review recommendations has been extended, with new training materials now expected to be released by November 2023.

The new updated National MPIO Program will deliver:

  • Training for MPIOs that aligns with the National Integrity Framework
  • A refreshed and updated MPIO e learning course
  • Refreshed and updated training delivery materials for those delivering MPIO training at State/Territory level
  • Support services and a community of practice via PBTR and its stakeholder network

A further announcement will take place once the new MPIO Program is launched. Until this time, the current PBTR MPIO program and training delivery will remain in place.
