A review of depots in Victorian local councils

IBAC investigated allegations of corrupt conduct at a council works depot. The investigation uncovered a number of issues relating to the management of the council's depots, including poor record-keeping and lack of audits. Four key areas of corruption risk identified during Operation Continent.

Following this investigation, IBAC undertook a broader review of six selected councils to determine whether agencies in the local government sector are facing similar risks in managing their depot functions.
