Batchelor Institute to Cooperate with ICAC Review

Batchelor Institute today announced it will collaborate and cooperate with the Office of the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption, in a review under section 23 of the ICAC Act, which commenced this week and may lead to better systems and processes in the future.

Batchelor Institute Chair of Council, Patricia Anderson AO, and Batchelor Institute Chief Executive Officer, Mick Gooda, have pledged full cooperation with ICAC throughout the review which will aim to identify whether improper conduct has occurred, is occurring, or is at risk of occurring, and will also focus on financial management and existing governance systems, including policies and procedures.

The Independent Commissioner Against Corruption, Michael Riches, advised that this is a review and is not an investigation, and that the purpose of the review is to assess practices, policies, and procedures, not to investigate individual conduct.

If there is evidence of improper conduct, that will be dealt with separately in accordance with the ICAC Act.
