Why you should report improper conduct
Improper conduct left unchecked can:
- lead to funding being diverted away from public services that support Territorians;
- waste public money and resources;
- undermine people’s trust in and respect for government;
- support ongoing criminal activity; and
- damage reputations of individuals, colleagues, organisations and the whole public sector.
Improper conduct hurts everyone.
Reporting improper conduct helps the ICAC to:
- expose improper conduct and risks that may otherwise remain hidden;
- provide assurances that dishonest practices are disrupted and stopped;
- ensure that public sector employees act in the public interest;
- identify improper conduct trends, issues and potential risks; and
- gather intelligence that may lead to an ICAC investigation.
