Under the Independent Commission Against Corruption Act 1988, the Director-General has a responsibility to report certain forms of corrupt conduct to the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC).
Corrupt conduct involves the misuse of public office, for example:
• partiality (ie. bias)
• breach of trust (ie. misuse of one’s position), or
• misuse of government information where such conduct could amount to a criminal offence, a disciplinary offence or give reasonable grounds for dismissal of a staff member.
