Why report corruption?

Corrupt activity left unchecked can:

  • lead to funding being diverted away from public services that support you and your family
  • waste public money and resources
  • undermine people’s trust and respect in government
  • assist ongoing criminal activity
  • result in unfair distribution of resources and privileges
  • damage reputations of:
    • the public sector as a whole
    • people's careers and relationships
    • other people working in the same organisation.

Help us serve the community of Victoria

Receiving complaints about corrupt activity:

  • helps us expose corrupt activities and risks that may otherwise remain hidden
  • helps us to keep the public service honest, transparent and accountable
  • provides assurances that dishonest practices are disrupted and stopped
  • helps us to ensure that public sector employees act in the public interest
  • helps us identify corruption trends, issues and potential risks
  • helps us to proactively work with public sector agencies to improve their systems and processes
  • allows us to gather intelligence which may lead to an IBAC investigation
  • informs the work we do with other Victorian integrity bodies across Australia.

It is in everyone’s interest to report corrupt activities when they see them.
