The CCC conducts audits to examine how public sector agencies have responded to particular types of complaints about corruption and how robust their complaints management and prevention frameworks are. The audits are also aimed at controlling the risks of corruption.
To determine what audits the CCC will undertake, a corruption audit plan is prepared that describes the proposed program of audits. The audit plan is agile and audits can and will be reprioritised to ensure the plan incorporates emerging corruption risks identified and continues to be responsive to areas of public interest throughout the year.
Our Corruption Audit Plan - 2018 - 2019
While not all CCC audit reports are made available to the public, summary audit reports may be produced to promote public confidence in the integrity of public administration. Our reports contain concise results of our findings and recommendations.
Below are the summary audit reports for 2018 - 2019.
In this audit, we will review agencies’ non-reportable corrupt conduct matters with a view to possibly making changes to the directions issued by the CCC, under section 40 of the CC Act, about how and when particular matters must be reported. This will ensure the CCC is immediately notified of the most serious cases of corrupt conduct, while agencies can act quickly to address less serious conduct.
Note – Non-reportable matters are complaints of corrupt conduct that under section 40 of the CC Act may be dealt with by the agency without having to report them to the CCC.
The audit examined the conduct of councillors and councils in the award of community grants, with a particular focus on the management of risk and probity. It included a review of policies and procedures, and a review of the processes followed to award grant funds to community organisations.
