Independent Commissioner Against Corruption – Office of Public Integrity

We all know that fraud and corruption in its many forms can flourish when nobody bothers to report suspicious conduct.

Under the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption Act 2012, all Public Officers have a mandatory obligation to report any conduct they reasonably suspect might be corruption or serious misconduct or maladministration in public administration.

Everyone who works in the University is a Public Officer.

If you are a public officer or public authority you need to conduct yourself in accordance with the ICAC Act and the Directions and Guidelines published by the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption.

Want to know more about your mandatory reporting obligation?

Information and awareness seminars are conducted by the Commissioner, the Hon Bruce Lander QC periodically. Please refer to the ICAC SA website for details of upcoming sessions.

The sessions address ICAC’s role and function, in addition to explaining what you are to report, how you are to report, when you are to report, and other rights and obligations imposed on South Australian public officers and public authorities under the ICAC Act.

University-based information sessions can be arranged for individuals or groups – Register your interest here
