Fraud Prevention and Protected Disclosures

We are dedicated to the highest level of ethical conduct and integrity. We are also committed to protecting our revenue, expenditure and property from fraud and corruption.

All our team members, Councillors, and contractors are required to act with integrity at all times, and refrain from fraudulent or corrupt conduct.

The Audit and Risk Management Committee (ARMC) is responsible for the oversight of fraud risk management.

Management is responsible for:

  • Ensuring that effective measures are in place to manage fraud risks
  • Conducting audits
  • Responding to incidents of fraud
  • Taking protected disclosures from, or about, any of their staff.

IBAC (Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission) identifies and investigates serious corrupt misconduct and acts as the clearing house for assessing protected disclosures in the Victorian public sector.

There are measures in place to prevent, detect and respond to fraud and corruption.

Reporting Fraud or Corruption and Making Protected Disclosures

Worried about fraud or corruption at Brimbank City Council? Everyone is encouraged to report any concerns to us by contacting our Protected Disclosure Coordinator or one of our Protected Disclosure Officers, (see list below) or IBAC.

Disclosures may be verbal or in writing. They can be anonymous and must be kept confidential. If you wish to make a Protected Disclosure, this must be in accordance with the Protected Disclosures Act 2012.
