Today, the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) launched its 2023 Perceptions of Corruption Survey. This year all elected representatives in Victoria – members of parliament and councillors – have been invited to participate.
The voluntary survey builds on IBAC's previous surveys on perceptions of corruption but is the first time MPs and councillors have been asked for their views. The anonymous survey will be conducted by an independent research company on behalf of IBAC.
The special report on IBAC’s Operation Daintree found that in October 2018, the then Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) entered into a $1.2 million contract with the Health Education Federation (HEF) – a recently established entity linked to the Health Workers Union (HWU) – to provide occupational violence and aggression training to health workers.
