Corporate Governance Framework
Action required at the point of discovery
7. In the event that employees discover, or have suspicions that fraud or corruption is occurring within the Commission, they should immediately inform their resource manager in the first instance.
Failing that, Chief Finance Officer, the Chief Executive, a member of the Audit and Risk Committee, a Commissioner, or the Internal Auditors, in accordance with the procedures specified in the Commission’s Public Interest Disclosure Policy should be informed. The Public Interest Disclosure Policy is set out in Appendix 4 of the Corporate Governance Framework.
8. It is important that the employee who has identified the suspected fraud or corruption does not take any action which may forewarn the alleged perpetrator. Instead, efforts should be directed, in conjunction with the appropriate development manager, towards ensuring that any readily available evidential material is secured for the investigation process. Under no circumstances should the employee attempt to investigate the suspected fraud or corruption personally.
