Why you should report improper conduct

Improper conduct left unchecked can:

  • lead to funding being diverted away from public services that support you and your family
  • waste public money and resources
  • undermine people’s trust and respect in government
  • support ongoing criminal activity
  • damage reputations of individuals, colleagues, organisations and the whole public sector.

Improper conduct hurts everyone.

Reporting improper conduct helps the Office of 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
  • gather intelligence which may lead to an Office of the ICAC investigation.
