Better Practice Program

Integrity and Ethics

Integrity and ethics has been a highly critical issue for all levels of government in the recent years.

Some of the high profile cases in local, state and federal governments in the recent times have demonstrated the importance and challenges in implementing an effective integrity framework in government organisations. With local government being the sphere of government closest to the people, the need for us to demonstrate good governance and integrity practices is crucial in building trust with communities.

In this session, you will hear from the Public Sector Commission about the recently launched Integrity Strategy; Corruption and Crime Commission, highlighting key lessons learnt from recent investigations into local government entities; and also case studies shared by CEOs who have first-hand experience of the challenges and opportunities in implementing a successful integrity framework in their local governments.
