Before the onset of the pandemic, the revelation that a member of the state senior executive service had perpetrated the largest case of fraud by a public servant in Australian history against the people of Western Australia was a shocking awakening for public service professionals across all tiers of government.

That case rightfully catches headlines for the sheer scale of the theft. Beyond the headlines however exist risks large and small across state and local government entities. These risks may be reasonably mitigated with up to date integrity and accountability systems. This conference will provide you with the latest in organisational culture, frameworks and processes that put you on the front foot in the fight for integrity and accountability in the public service.

You will hear insights from, and have the opportunity to ask questions of, those who have investigated, reported on, responded to, and prepared the sector for integrity and accountability risks in the early decades of the 21st century.

This session is suitable for public service professionals across all levels of government in the areas of:

  • Human resources
  • Risk management
  • Finance
  • Project management
  • Contract management
  • Stakeholder engagement

From the harsh lights of the criminal justice system and ongoing media scrutiny state and local government in Western Australia must emerge with more effective integrity and accountability systems. This conference forms part of the rebuilding process, a process that we encourage you to be part of.
