The CMC’s report Public Duty, Private Interests: Issues in pre-separation conduct and post-separation employment for the Queensland public sector examines Scott Flavell’s misuse of his position as Director-General to help an entrepreneur establish a private skills training company. The report was tabled in Parliament on 18 December 2008.
The report highlights the need for better controls over the use of information or influence by former public servants representing private interests.
It also addresses issues relating to pre-separation conduct and post-separation employment after senior executives leave the public sector.
The investigation, which was undertaken jointly with the Department of Education, Training and the Arts (DETA), included holding public hearings.
