Part of developing strong leadership for an organisation like the CDPP, is bringing an ethical framework to our decision making. Everyone at the CDPP undertakes to follow these standards on joining our organisation, and is expected to adhere to the standards throughout their time with us.
The Australian Public Service Commission’s Ethics Advisory Service is available to all employees who wish to discuss and seek advice on ethical issues that occur in the workplace and make sound decisions around these issues. Our people can also access policies, guidance and support from our People team and through the Employee Assistance Program.
We also rigorously pursue disclosure and management of conflict of interest.
Our Governance team reviews and strengthens the conflict of interest policy and related guidance and procedures each year to enable all officials under the PGPA Act, including the Director as the accountable authority, to meet their disclosure requirements.
