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 provides regular updates for the corruption prevention community through its monthly CP Basics seminar. Anyone can attend - we simply ask that you register. The next CP basics seminars for 2015 will be:
