Corruption in focus

A guide to dealing with corrupt conduct in the Queensland public sector (formerly "Facing the facts")

This guide has been designed to be used throughout the public sector. With the exception of Chapter 4, which looks specifically at local government, it does not provide advice on legislation or rules that might be specific to a particular unit of public administration. It does, however, provide practical advice on:

  • meeting your obligations under the CC Act
  • conducting an investigation
  • maintaining the integrity of the complaints process
  • ensuring confidentiality and fairness during the process
  • preventing corrupt conduct.

    Changes to the Crime and Corruption Act 2001


    Some major changes to the Crime and Corruption Act 2001 have been made. Two key amendments relevant to UPAs are:

    1. a new section 40A, which includes an additional record-keeping requirement (which came into effect on 9 November 2018), and
    2. a new definition of corrupt conduct in section 15 (which will come into effect from 1 March 2019).

    Corruption in focus has been updated to reflect these changes.

    Section 48A suggested policy outline

    Under s48A of the CC Act UPAs must have a policy for dealing with complaints that involve or may involve the public official/CEO. The CCC has provided this outline to assist UPAs with what such a policy should include and a draft template which may be reproduced or drawn on for guidance in the development of their own policy.
