Anti-corruption tools and techniques for public sector agencies

One-day short course


18th October 2016


ANU Crawford School of Public Policy



Anti-corruption tools and techniques have become a core part of public sector governance. In this course you will learn about corruption and how to apply anti-corruption tools and techniques within your organisation’s governance.

Course overview

Over the last two decades corruption has become a significant policy area in international and domestic public sector governance. Continuing calls to establish a Federal anti-corruption body similar to state-type ICACs highlights the need for federal agencies to understand and implement anti-corruption strategies as part of contemporary public sector administration.

This is a multi-media course (which will include reviewing video footage and interactive sessions) that will introduce you to corruption theory and practices. You will learn how to identify corruption, its causes, red-flags and approaches to its prevention. You will learn about the relevant standards and compliance obligations and how to practically apply anti-corruption tools and techniques to public sector administration, from developing codes of conduct to engaging probity auditors. This intermediate course is designed for those wishing to expand their knowledge of corporate governance. Specialist forensic knowledge is not a pre-requisite.

You will leave with a good understanding of anti-corruption, industry tools and techniques and how to apply them to the work of your organisation.
