Securing evidence

10. Resource managers should, following information from an employee or other source about suspicious activity, take immediate steps to secure any available evidence which is considered to substantiate the alleged fraud or corruption. Where possible, advice should be taken from the Commission’s legal advisers on procedures to preserve that evidence for any potential legal proceedings. The gathering of any additional evidence should only be undertaken with the advice and agreement of the investigator.

11. In order to secure the evidence in a legally admissible form consideration should first be given to photographing the relevant documents in the location where found. Thereafter they should be preserved in their original state, as they may need to be fingerprinted or otherwise tested, and stored in a secure place. A record should be maintained of precisely where, when and by whom they were found and of anyone handling the evidence.
