Karratha - Navigating the new integrity landscape: Working with the PSC and CCC

Public Sector Commission

Event outline

The Public Sector Commission is pleased to announce a series of information sessions to be held in regional WA over the 2015–16 financial year. The Commission will be visiting regional centres to deliver information session in the key integrity areas of reporting minor misconduct, wrongdoing and good decision making.

On 1 July 2015 the Corruption, Crime and Misconduct Act 2003 (CCM Act) came into effect. The way that misconduct is notified has changed and this will have implications for public authorities. The legislation now contemplates minor and serious misconduct. Under the CCM Act all reasonable suspicions of minor misconduct will be notified to the Public Sector Commission (the PSC) and all reasonable suspicions of serious misconduct will be notified to the Corruption and Crime Commission (the CCC). The PSC will now also be responsible for misconduct prevention and education activities.

Senior representatives from the PSC will present information and facilitate case studies to assist you to understand the new requirement.

The session will assist you to:

  • Understand how the integrity landscape in Western Australia has changed, know the lead agencies and understand their role
  • Learn what behaviours and circumstances might constitute minor and serious misconduct to make an informed decision about notifying appropriately
  • Understand how capturing and reporting information about the conduct of public officers assists in the PSC’s role in informing public authorities about their integrity risks

Target audience

senior integrity officers and those involved with notifying and managing misconduct matters. This session is suitable for employees of public sector agencies, local government, public universities and many public sector boards and committees.

If you have any queries, please contact the Commission’s Advisory Line on 6552 8888.
