Council recognises that fraud and corruption in public administration have the potential to cause significant financial and non-financial harm and that therefore the prevention and control of fraud and corruption should feature predominantly within its systems.

Accordingly, it has established a framework in its Fraud and Corruption Prevention Policy to prevent and minimise risk in these areas.

Elected members and employees (and in some cases, council volunteers) are bound by their roles as public officers to report corruption, serious or systemic maladministration and serious or systemic misconduct to the office for public Integrity in accordance with the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption's (ICAC) Directions and Guidelines.

For behaviour which is not corrupt, serious or systemic maladministration or serious or systemic misconduct, refer to Council's Fraud and Corruption Prevention Policy for guidance as to where such behaviour should be reported.
