Public sector corruption hurts all Victorians

This information sheet provides examples of corruption and misconduct and red flags for corruption. It also explains the importance of reporting corruption, and IBAC's role in preventing and exposing it.

The Victorian community expects our public sector to be free of corruption. All public sector employees must act with integrity, impartiality, accountability and respect. They must act in the interests of all Victorians – not for personal gain.

Public sector corruption hurts everyone. It wastes taxes and rates that should be used to operate and maintain Victoria's schools, hospitals, roads and other vital public services and projects.

When something's not right in the public sector, it's up to all of us to speak up and report suspected wrongdoing.
