The ICAC to visit Port Lincoln

Published on 26 Sep 2016

The Independent Commissioner Against Corruption (ICAC) will visit Port Lincoln as part of regional education program 

The Independent Commissioner Against Corruption, the Hon. Bruce Lander QC, will be in Port Lincoln 6– 7 October to speak to public officers as part of his regional education program. 

The Commissioner will deliver two sessions to public officers employed in state and local government. The sessions will address the role and functions of the ICAC, and the types of conduct that must be reported to the Office for Public Integrity (OPI). 

The first session will be presented to elected members of the City of Port Lincoln with elected members from some other councils on the Eyre Peninsula expected to attend. It will be held on Thursday 6 October in the City of Port Lincoln Council Chambers. 

The second session is open to all public officers, and will be held Friday 7 October 10.00-11.30am in the Port Lincoln Hotel Ballroom. State government and local government public officers from the region are invited to attend. Contractors to state or local government agencies and members of the public are also welcome. 

Those that are interested in attending the Friday morning session should register on the ICAC website <icac.sa.gov.au/content/education-events> 

“Public administration isn’t confined to the metropolitan limits of outer Adelaide. These sessions will assist public officers on the Eyre Peninsula in understanding the importance of integrity in public administration and the role that public officers play,” said Commissioner Lander. 

The Commissioner’s visit is part of his regional education program. The Independent Commissioner Against Corruption Act 2012 (the ICAC Act) requires the Commissioner to facilitate an education program aimed at eliminating or minimising corruption, misconduct and maladministration in South Australian public administration.
