Victorian major infrastructure projects make up a complex sector that receives billions of taxpayer dollars each year. The 2022-23 Victorian State Budget committed $3.5 billion to public transport services and infrastructure. These major projects are under pressure to complete constructions and provide essential buildings and services for Victorians.
The Victorian community expects major infrastructure projects to be managed with integrity to ensure public funds are handled appropriately, and to minimise the risks of corruption.
The Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission’s (IBAC’s) Operating Model is a visual representation and description of how we work to deliver public value to the Victorian Community.
The Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) was established in 2012 by the IBAC Act 2011 (“IBAC Act”). The IBAC consists of one Commissioner to which IBAC may delegate any function or power of IBAC. IBAC must also appoint a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) who is the Special Body Head of IBAC under the Public Administration Act 2004 (“PA Act”). Hence there are two key roles responsible for the internal governance of IBAC – the Commissioner and the CEO.
Community service organisations (CSOs) play a critical role in delivering a range of welfare and social services to support individuals, families and communities. Considerable public funds support the delivery of many of these services. IBAC's research explores corruption risks in this sector and how to mitigate them.
