What does it mean to be a Public Officer?

New FAQs explain

If you are a staff member, a titleholder, a volunteer or a contractor to the University, you have legal obligations under the SA Independent Commissioner Against Corruption Act.

Importantly, this means that you must report any behaviour or conduct you reasonably suspect involves corruption or serious or systemic misconduct or maladministration in public administration to the Office for Public Integrity.

The University has developed FAQs for reporting to the Office for Public Integrity to support Public Officers to understand and meet these obligations. The FAQs address questions about when and how to make a report and what happens afterwards.

Please take the time to become familiar with your responsibilities and learn how the University can support you to comply with your obligations.

Honesty and integrity are fundamental values of the University. All personnel have a role to play in creating a culture of integrity and accountability.

For information about internal reporting pathways, you can also refer to the Reporting suspected wrongdoing webpage.
