Why report corruption?

Unchecked corruption can:

  • take away funding from public services that support you and your family
  • waste public money and resources
  • undermine people’s trust in and respect for government
  • support ongoing criminal activity
  • damage the reputations of individuals, colleagues, organisations and the public sector. 


How reporting corruption helps

Reporting corrupt activity enables IBAC to:

  • expose hidden corruption and risks 
  • disrupt and stop dishonest practices 
  • ensure public sector employees act in the public interest
  • identify corruption trends, issues and potential risks
  • gather intelligence that may lead to an IBAC investigation.
