Prevention and management of fraud and corruption

The Office of the Queensland Ombudsman is committed to high standards of professional and ethical conduct. The Office has zero tolerance for, and is committed to preventing, fraud and corruption in the workplace. 

All employees, and those we engage with, have a responsibility to conduct business activities within legislative and organisational standards. Fraud and corrupt conduct are contrary to law and the Ombudsman’s values and code of conduct.

The Prevention and management of fraud and corruption - Control plan for external stakeholders (PDF210.3KB) supports a proactive culture of integrity to reduce the potential for fraud and corruption to occur within or against the Office.

The control plan sets out processes to support the prevention, detection and response to suspected fraud and corruption.  It ensures that external parties understand their responsibilities and the mechanisms in place to report and manage any suspected instances of fraud and corruption.
