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.
Following a notification received in November 2015, IBAC commenced an investigation into allegations a former manager at the City of Ballarat Council subverted procurement processes to obtain financial advantage and failed to fully declare and manage conflicts of interest.
