Monday 01 Mar 2021 IBAC Strategic Assessment
The Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission, IBAC, regularly assesses corruption risks and trends across Victorian state government and local councils. We consult widely to gauge areas most at risk of corruption and identify emerging risks. This helps direct corruption prevention activities strategically to prevent vital public services being undermined, official positions being misused, and public resources being stolen. Here are the main findings from our latest research conducted in 2019/20.
