Corruption in the public sector - the big issues
Lessons from investigations by the Crime and Corruption Commission, 2009–14.

Since 2009, the major corruption issues seen in the Queensland public sector by Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) investigators have been:

  • corruption and favouritism
  • unauthorised disclosure of information 
  • misappropriation of assets and 
  • procurement. 

They comprised 65 per cent of the investigations undertaken by the CCC during that time. Failure of supervision was identified as a key enabler of serious and systemic corruption across the public sector.
