Integrity and conduct survey

The Integrity and conduct survey (ICS) is sent annually to the principal officer of all local governments, public universities, government trading enterprises and government boards and committees.

The ICS is one of the methods the Commission uses to evaluate compliance with the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2003 (PID Act) and the Corruption, Crime and Misconduct Act 2003 (CCM Act).

The PID Act requires the Commissioner to report to Parliament on public authorities compliance with the PID Act and the Public interest disclosure code of conduct and integrity. Additionally, the CCM Act requires the Commissioner to monitor and report to Parliament on activities undertaken by public authorities to respond effectively to, and prevent, misconduct.

Public sector agencies (including departments of state, senior executive service (SES) organisations and non-SES organisations) respond to the Public sector entity survey(PSES), which contains similar questions to the ICS so results can be easily compared.

The ICS is sent annually in June and requests data for the financial year.
