CCC Corruption Audit Plan for 2016–17

As part of its function to reduce corruption in the public sector, the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) conducts audits to find out how Queensland's public sector agencies deal with complaints of corrupt conduct.

The audits are designed to assess:

  • whether an agency has appropriate systems, policies and procedures for dealing with complaints or information about corruption
  • whether an agency has met legal requirements and other relevant standards in dealing with such complaints
  • how efficiently and effectively an agency or a group of agencies has responded to classes of complaints or corruption risks.

Audit Plan 2016–17

The following audits are proposed for the period May 2016 to June 2017. Reports are provided to participating agencies and, where the CCC determines it is in the public interest to make audit findings public, will publish them on its website.
