Fraud and Corruption Control Framework

This page is for: 

DMIRS is committed to the highest possible standards of openness, probity and accountability in all its affairs. The department acknowledges that fraud and corruption risks exist and will work continuously and collaboratively to detect and manage these risks.

The Fraud and Corruption Control Framework details the department’s approach to prevent, detect and respond to fraud and corruption.

All employees share in the responsibility to identify and report suspected fraud or corruption, behave ethically and promote a culture of integrity in the workplace.

The framework applies to:

  • all employees and those working alongside employees and/or carrying out work in in any capacity for the department; and
  • any external party involved in providing goods and services, with or without receipt of payment, to the department, such as contractors, consultants, outsourced service providers and suppliers.

Suspected fraud or corruption will be managed in accordance with internal corporate policy documents and the Corruption, Crime and Misconduct Act 2003. All legal obligations to the principles of procedural fairness will be met. 

With an emphasis on employee awareness, education and promoting a culture of reporting, the framework outlines the department’s approach to fraud and corruption risks with:

  • a zero tolerance attitude towards fraud and corruption;
  • commitment to integrity and accountability through the effective management of fraud and corruption risks;
  • a responsibility to ensure that all necessary measures are taken to ensure employees act ethically and with integrity and are held accountable for their actions;
  • a commitment to promote an integrity culture within the department; and
  • a responsibility for all employees to assess the risk of fraud and corruption in their business area, identify and report suspected fraud or corruption.
