Rural and regional outreach program

The Rural and Regional Outreach Program commenced in 2001 to bring corruption prevention advice and resources on-site to non-metropolitan areas of NSW. The ICAC conducts two comprehensive Rural and Regional Outreach visits each year.

Each visit includes training workshops for public sector managers and supervisors, a community leaders' event and briefing sessions.  

These visits aim to:

  • raise understanding of corruption risks
  • provide practical corruption prevention information
  • give advice on how to report corrupt activities.


ICAC officers run free workshops for public officials on:

  • ICAC's powers, functions and resources for the public sector
  • identifying corruption risks
  • corruption prevention in procurement
  • putting corruption prevention strategies in place
  • managing internal reporting systems
  • fact finding and conducting internal investigations within a public sector agency/council.

Supervisors and middle-to-senior local and state government managers should attend the workshops. Although these workshops are free, spaces are limited so it is always good to book early. If attendance is not possible on the day, please arrange for another staff member to attend.

The next Outreach visit will be held in the South East region later in the year. Dates will be announced soon.
