Fraud Awareness Survey

In November 2011 The Office of the Auditor-General released the results of a survey on fraud awareness, prevention, and detection in New Zealand's public sector.

In early 2011 approximately 2000 surveys were sent out and over 1500 returned, a very satisfactory response rate. While the survey confirmed a low level of fraud within the public sector, it also highlighted a lack of awareness in many key areas. Particular risks included misplaced trust in employees working on their own when responsible for major transactions, poor procurement policies, inconsistent fraud awareness training, and the need for improved whistle-blowing processes. The OAG website contains details about this survey.

TI-NZ Director Suzanne Snively participated in two panel discussions highlighting Transparency International's key role in championing good governance and a corruption free New Zealand. Review her presentation: Global Opportunities New Zealand
