How can data, case studies of success, and analytical models catalyse creative problem-solving on sensitive issues? Using examples from around the world, this interactive workshop presents a method for combining policy analysis and local knowledge, with a focus on combating corruption.

The NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption has been providing corruption prevention training across the New South Wales public sector for many years. In this interactive session, Senior Corruption Prevention Officer Adam Shapiro will draw on that experience, published better practice, and the experience of session participants to tackle the issue of how an agency might approach in‐house corruption prevention training.

Public officers at all levels are confronted with integrity dilemmas as part of their roles every day. Integrity in action is all about what happens immediately after the dilemma, when professionalism, loyalty, and values are tested.
This interactive session will present a set of strategies to build corruption resistance in public sector organisations, and empower participants with practical approaches for targeting areas at risk of integrity failure in their organisations.

Through a combination of scenario-based and role-played case studies, participants will explore a series of common integrity traps faced by public sector organisations and public officers:

  • conflicts of interest
  • employment practices
  • procurement
  • information access and control.

Governments spend large proportions of their budgets on buying things. There are processes in place to ensure integrity in procurement. There have been numerous scandals where procurement processes have been undermined and flouted. This has severe adverse effects.

This workshop diagnoses types of corruption in procurement and provides tools not only to spot red flags for corruption, but build integrity mechanisms to reduce maladministration and strengthen procurement processes.

It is common for public duties to conflict with private interests when working in the public sector and local government. This interactive workshop uses scenarios to illustrate the challenges in identifying and dealing with conflicts of interest. It also explores good practice approaches to recording and managing these conflicts.

Workshop 2 - Getting the most out of your corruption prevention training program

Learning objectives

As a session participant you will consider what topics might be included in in‐house corruption prevention training, how to determine your key audiences and influencers, and what strategies you might use to engage workshop participants, challenge their views, and question the impact of their workplace behaviours. The session will also address how formal training can sit within a broader awareness‐raising program.

The session will focus on some key questions such as:

  • What are you trying to achieve with your training?
  • What are the shortcomings of compliance‐driven approaches?
  • Who should I be targeting?
  • How can I use corruption prevention training to support wider organisational change, and lessen corruption risk at a time to change and confusion?
  • Can I use corruption prevention training to help make systems more resistant to corruption?
  • What approach should I take?
  • Do I focus on rule‐setting, ethics, risk management, personal responsibility, system improvement, behaviour change, creating workplace norms, or some combination?
  • What strategy is more likely to create the change my agency wants to see?

Participants should come to this session with a willingness to discuss the issues and share their experiences with others in the room.
