ICAC Awareness for Public Officers
The Independent Commissioner Against Corruption (ICAC) and the Office for Public Integrity (OPI) are designed to safeguard and enhance confidence in the integrity of public administration in South Australia.
ICAC regularly holds awareness sessions, workshops and seminars to assist public officers and public authorities to comply with their obligations and prevent corruption, misconduct and maladministration in public administration.
This information and awareness seminar was conducted by the Commissioner himself, The Hon. Bruce Lander QC. The Commissioner described the role and functions of ICAC and the OPI, and explained the reporting obligations all South Australian public officers and public authorities must follow.
