CCC corruption audit plan for 2017–19

As part of its function to help build the integrity of, and reduce the risk of corruption in, the Queensland public sector, the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) conducts a program of audits.

The audits are designed to determine how well public sector agencies have responded to particular types of complaints and how robust their complaints management frameworks are, including preventing future cases of corruption. The CCC also includes specific audits aimed at controlling the risks of corruption within the public sector.

Audit Plan 2017–19

The CCC prepares a two-year audit plan before 30 June that describes the proposed program of audits. In this process we identified three key areas of focus for the first year of the two-year audit plan (that is, July 2017 to June 2018), that target matters that would provide the greatest value to the Queensland public sector and the community. There are two previous audits that overlap into the first quarter of 201718.

The areas of focus may change during the audit execution of the planned individual audits. The audit plan may also be amended in circumstances where there is a clear public interest to conduct an audit in order to promote public confidence in the public sector agency.

Audit Reports are provided to participating agencies. In addition, to increase the impact of our audits, the CCC will publish a summary report, and any corporate material, on its website.

The CCC audit plan 2017–19 sets out more detailed information about how the CCC plans its key areas of focus.

Public reports

The CCC produces summary audit reports to promote public confidence in the integrity of public administration. Our reports link to the relevant Corruption Audit Plans and contain the concise results of our corruption audits. We consider the reports provide information to interested parties on the standards of integrity and conduct in public sector agencies, the adequacy of prevention measures, and that a complaint about, or information or matter involving, corruption is dealt with in an appropriate way.
