The CCC conducts audits to examine how public sector agencies have responded to particular types of complaints about corruption and how robust their complaints management and prevention frameworks are. The audits are also aimed at controlling the risks of corruption.

To determine what audits the CCC will undertake, a corruption audit plan is prepared that describes the proposed program of audits.

Public reports

While not all CCC audit reports are made available to the public, summary audit reports may be produced to promote public confidence in the integrity of public administration. Our reports contain concise results of our findings and recommendations. 

Below are the summary audit reports for 2019 - 2020. 

Assessing allegations of corrupt conduct: Recordkeeping requirements under section 40A – September 2020This summary audit report Assessing allegations of corrupt conduct: Recordkeeping requirements under section 40A contains the results of an audit conducted by the CCC in 2019–20. The CCC examined the policies and processes of seven public sector agencies to assess their capacity to:

  • effectively capture complete and accurate records of their assessment decisions of complaints about corrupt conduct coming to their attention, and
  • correctly form conclusions that the allegations did not reasonably raise a suspicion of corrupt conduct for the complaints to be notified to the CCC.

This report includes a short guide to recordkeeping requirements for section 40A, including a suggested Corrupt Conduct Assessment form with detailed instructions, and examples of records to be kept.

Reducing the risk of research fraud This audit was conducted to evaluate the measures that Queensland universities have put in place to mitigate research fraud. The summary of the full audit is intended to highlight the lessons to be learned from the experiences of the three participating universities, build the capacity of agencies that conduct research to deal with similar issues, and to increase transparency about the operation of the public sector.

Managing corruption risks associated with timesheet and leave activitiesThis audit assessed if employee fraud in public sector agencies is adequately prevented through timesheet and leave processes. The summary audit report includes case studies and a prevention guide for combating timesheet and leave fraud, with examples of strategies to address corruption risks.
