Fraud and corruption statement
Fraud and corruption against the Australian Governmant is a serious matter. We do not tolerate dishonest, fraudulent, or corrupt conduct. We strive to achieve best practice in managing fraud and corruption and take an adverse stance towards fraud risk.
We recognise that we can’t avoid or prevent all fraud and corruption risk. This means despite our best efforts against fraud and corruption control, there is an inherent risk of exposure. We seek to minimise this risk exposure through a holistic approach to fraud and corruption control.
The secretary is the ultimate accountable authority under the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act).
