The genesis of the CPN came from practitioners getting together in the early 1990’s with officers from the ICAC and Audit Office to consider how best to address issues which were repeatedly surfacing from internal and external investigations. There was a concern to move towards prevention. This was given increased impetus by the release of the NSW Audit Office’s Fraud Control Guide in 1994.
The CPN runs CP basics to update the corruption prevention community on new developments relevant to the field. Anyone can attend - we simply ask that you register. The first CP basics seminar for 2015 will be:
11 March: Behaving ethically: A guide for NSW government sector employees. Peter McIlwain of the Public Service Commission will talk about the principles underpinning Behaving Ethically and explain the thinking behind one of the key components – a new sector-wide Code of Ethics and Conduct.
CP Basics is held at 12:30 to 2:00pm on the second Wednesday of each month (except September when the CPN holds its all day forum) at the Mitchell Theatre, Sydney Mechanics School of Arts, 280 Pitt Street, Sydney.
