Seminar: Internal Investigation Concepts & Principles

If you are involved in conducting, overseeing or acting upon the outcome of an internal investigation, it is important to understand the concepts and principles that underpin a good investigation.


On 29 June 2020 Step 3 of the South Australian government’s Roadmap for Easing COVID-19 Restrictions came into effect, detailing the actions required to recommence activities such as indoor public meetings. ICAC is now in the process of planning events and training sessions for the remainder of the year and we will endeavour to confirm our list of events in late July.

SA public officers are encouraged to register for the ICAC Online Learning Portal and complete the ICAC Induction for Public Officers and ICAC Conflicts of Interest courses.
