Corruption control policy

OEH promotes an organisational culture that does not tolerate any act of fraud or corruption.

The Corruption Control Policy (PDF 596KB) sets out OEH’s commitment to reduce and manage the incidence of fraud and corrupt conduct through prevention, detection and responding to corruption.

Apart from the legal consequences of fraud and corruption, improper acts have the potential to damage OEH's public image and reputation. Unresolved allegations can also undermine an otherwise credible position and reflect negatively on innocent individuals.

All staff must be above fraud and corruption. Through transparent and accountable decision-making, together with open discussion by staff and managers about the risks of fraud and corruption, OEH seeks to foster an organisational climate that does not tolerate fraud or corruption.

OEH will deal fairly with all parties in the course of investigating allegations of fraud or corruption. However, if fraud or corruption is proven, OEH will apply appropriate action pursuant to the Government Sector Employment Act 2013, which may include actions ranging from reprimand through to termination of employment. Suspected corrupt conduct will be referred to the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC).  Where criminal conducted is suspected the matter will be reported to the NSW Police Force.
