Australian Public Service (APS) Code of Conduct provides specific behavioural requirements for all employees.

These procedures outline how our department manages breaches of the APS Code of Conduct. They apply in determining:

  • whether an employee or former employee has breached the APS Code of Conduct
  • the sanctions, if any, to impose.

We publish these procedures in accordance with section 15(7) of the Public Service Act 1999.
