Australian Standard on Fraud and Corruption Control
The Australian Standard on Fraud and Corruption Control (AS 8001:2021) is a useful framework for assisting Victorian public sector agencies, local government and Victoria Police to control their fraud and corruption risks across all aspects of their operational and administrative functions.
Glossary for corruption and police misconduct allegations
IBAC's system of categorising allegations of public sector corruption and police misconduct allows us to quickly identify what each one is about, and any trends and issues across organisations and sectors.
'Cover up' behaviours that mask police misconduct
Through our research and investigations, IBAC has observed a range of behaviours that can allow misconduct to go undetected and even take hold in policing. If they go unchecked, these behaviours enable misconduct to be covered up or hidden, which impacts the ability to investigate and stop it. This graphic outlines five key patterns of obscuring or 'cover up' behaviour that can occur and that Victoria Police needs to guard against. Some of the key ways police can try to conceal misconduct, include:
IBAC Strategic Assessment
The Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission, IBAC, regularly assesses corruption risks and trends across Victorian state government and local councils. We consult widely to gauge areas most at risk of corruption and identify emerging risks. This helps direct corruption prevention activities strategically to prevent vital public services being undermined, official positions being misused, and public resources being stolen. Here are the main findings from our latest research conducted in 2019/20.
Yes, it's corruption campaign
IBAC's latest campaign 'Yes, it's corruption. Yes, I can do something about it' calls on all Victorians to realise the pivotal role they can play in preventing public sector corruption. Use these posters and social media images to help raise awareness.
Examples of mandatory notifications under Section 57
Five examples of mandatory notifications to IBAC based on actual assessed cases. These case studies explain the actions taken as a result of our assessment. They include examples of notifications that were investigated, referred and dismissed.
