University Integrity Survey

We are asking university staff to share their thoughts, feelings and experiences with potential corruption or inappropriate conduct in their work place. ICAC University Integrity Survey 10 March – 3 April.

Two years ago more than 12,500 public sector and local government employees participated in the ICAC Public Integrity Survey 2018. Their responses revealed unique insights into perceptions of corruption and inappropriate conduct throughout the state.

This year we are asking South Australia’s public university workforce to participate in the ICAC University Integrity Survey.

We want to hear from anyone who is currently employed by Flinders University, The University of Adelaide or University of South Australia. This includes all academic staff, researchers and professional staff, whose employment is casual, contracted or tenured.

How do I take part?

All university staff should receive an email with a survey link via their university email accounts. 

If you have not received your email invitation, please contact

The survey should take you approximately 10 minutes, depending on any written responses you choose to provide. The survey works best on a desktop, laptop or tablet computer using an up-to-date internet browser.

Will my privacy be respected?

The privacy of survey participants is of the utmost importance. We understand that answering questions about issues of workplace corruption and inappropriate conduct can make people feel uncomfortable, which is why we have worked hard to build a survey that protects your privacy.

The online survey is encrypted and anonymous. Neither ICAC nor your employer can identify you. Other than your survey responses, no other information is collected. You may like to complete the survey while at work, or you may feel more comfortable using your own computer at home.

The survey itself is not a secret, so feel free to discuss it openly with your colleagues and encourage them to participate; but your responses should be kept private.


If you encounter any technical problems while completing the survey, you can contact tech support on (08) 8232 3355 during normal business hours.

If you have questions about ICAC’s research and prevention activities, including our events and online learning materials, you can email

Something to report?

Employees and contractors of Flinders University, The University of Adelaide and University of South Australia are public officers for the purpose of the ICAC Act and have an obligation to make a report to the Office for Public Integrity (OPI) if they think a South Australian public officer has broken the law, or acted in a way that is seriously inappropriate or negligent.
