Have your say in the perceptions of corruption survey

The Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) is conducting research to better understand perceptions about public sector corruption – including corruption in local government – and police misconduct. The aim, of the survey is to understand the barriers and drivers to reporting.

IBAC is the agency responsible for preventing and exposing public sector corruption and police misconduct in Victoria

This important survey will provide a picture of the corruption and misconduct landscape in local government and explore how this is changing over time. The findings will assist with identifying opportunities to enhance integrity and corruption resistance within councils.

The research involves a 10-minute online survey with different stakeholders including local government. Participation will be anonymous and no individual staff or council will be identified. The survey is open during May.

IBAC has conducted similar surveys in the past but the 2020 survey will – for the first time- include questions about perceptions of IBAC.

All council CEOs should have received correspondence from IBAC advising them about the survey, with the survey link to promote to staff. IBAC wants a good cross-section of responses from staff across council work areas and from councils across the state.

If you have not received the email with the link to the survey, please contact your council’s CEO office or IBAC.

Summary findings will be shared with local government in the second half of 2022 and will be published on IBAC’s website(opens in a new window).

If you have any questions about the survey, you can contact IBAC’s Principal Project Officer – Corruption Prevention, Kerryn Adams at kerryn.adams@ibac.vic.gov.au.
