Talking Integrity with the Attorney-General’s Department
Recent changes to legislation make it easier for anyone to disclose information to Commonwealth agencies on issues of Integrity. During this exclusive session for ACFE chapter members and guests, Andrew Lawrence and Hannah Normoyle will take us through what the changes mean and how they better equip agencies to collect, use and disclose personal information for counter-fraud and corruption. It will also provide an opportunity to discuss draft guidance relating to the changes and address questions about the operation of the legislation.
The Crimes Legislation Amendment Powers Offences and Other Measures Act 2018 (CLAPOOM) amended the Crimes Act 1914 (Cth) to create an authorisation for any person or entity to disclose personal information to a Commonwealth entity for an integrity purpose, defined in the legislation as counter-fraud and corruption.
