Fraud prevention

Directional signpost with pointers to Anticorruption, Accountability, Ethics, Integrity, Principles

We are committed to the highest level of ethical conduct and integrity, and to protecting our revenue, expenditure and property from fraud and corruption.

All staff, Councillors, and contractors are required to act with integrity at all times and refrain from fraudulent or corrupt conduct.

The Audit and Risk Committee (ARC) is responsible for the oversight of fraud risk management.

Management is responsible for:

  • Ensuring that effective measures are in place to manage fraud risks
  • Conducting audits
  • Responding to incidents of fraud
  • Taking protected disclosures from, or about, any of their staff.

We have measures in place to prevent, detect and respond to fraud and corruption. These are outlined in our:

Our Employee Code of Conduct  (PDF, 257KB), Councillor code of conduct and various policies relating to purchasing and use of equipment provide guidance on acceptable conduct.

The Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) identifies and investigates serious corrupt misconduct and acts as the clearing house for assessing public interest disclosures in the Victorian public sector.
