Arrangements to manage misconduct and notify minor misconduct

17 November 2016

The Corruption, Crime and Misconduct Act 2003 (CCM Act) defines misconduct and requires public authorities to manage and notify misconduct. Serious misconduct must be notified to the Corruption and Crime Commission (CCC), while notification of minor misconduct must be made to the Public Sector Commission.

After a year of operation under the revised notification and reporting arrangements, the Commissioner considered it appropriate to evaluate aspects of the culture, leadership, systems and processes used within public authorities to manage misconduct. An evaluation was undertaken by the Commission to build an understanding about the nature and maturity of controls. The evaluation includes suggested improvements to increase the capacity of public authorities to prevent and respond to misconduct.

The evaluation report is now available.
