Evaluation of the City of Playford: Call for submissions

Published on 13 May 2019

Statement by Mr Michael Riches Acting Independent Commissioner Against Corruption

On 10 April 2019 I made a public statement about the evaluation of the practices, policies and procedures of the City of Playford.

Today I extend an invitation to any member of the public, industry group, union or other individual or body with an interest in the evaluation, to make a written submission.

While all information provided will be considered, I encourage those making a written submission to ensure it relates to the scope of the evaluation.

The scope of the evaluation is as follows:

  • The extent to which the City of Playford’s governance framework adequately guards against the risks of corruption, misconduct and maladministration.
  • Practices, policies and procedures in respect of:
    • Human resource management within the City of Playford and whether those practices, policies and procedures efficiently manage human resources and control the risks of corruption, misconduct and maladministration.
    • Financial management and whether those practices, policies and procedures adequately manage the risks of corruption, misconduct and maladministration.
    • Information management and whether those practices, policies and procedures adequately protect the City of Playford’s information assets from misuse.
    • The availability and use of assets and resources by public officers employed within the City of Playford and whether those practices, policies and procedures provide a sufficient safeguard to minimise the misuse of those assets and resources.

Written submissions will be received until 5:00pm, Friday 31 May 2019 and can be sent via email evaluation@icac.sa.gov.au or by post, GPO Box 11066 Adelaide SA 5001.

I reiterate that this is not an investigation of individual conduct or of an individual matter. It is an evaluation of practices, policies and procedures. If information is received during the evaluation that might give rise to a potential issue of corruption, misconduct or maladministration, that information will be assessed by the Office for Public Integrity and will be dealt with in accordance with the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption Act 2012.

Any person wishing to obtain more information about the evaluation should visit the ICAC website.
