Corruption Risks – Recommendations to NSW Government – ICAC June 2011

Corruption Risks - Recommendations to NSW Government - ICAC June 2011The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) has identified procurement as a major risk area for corruption in the NSW public sector. Each year, approximately 12% of complaints received by the ICAC include allegations of corruption in NSW government procurement and approximately 30% of our public inquiries make findings of corrupt conduct related to NSW government procurement activities. Almost half of the 1,515 government suppliers that took part in an ICAC survey reported that they believe corruption in public procurement in NSW is a moderate to major problem.
