PD Number: PD20040020
Status: TAFE POLICY UNDER REVIEW

Public Accountability

The NSW Department of Education and Communities engages in a range of commercial activities including providing training courses for business, supplying curriculum resources, managing commercial contracts and buying goods and services.
In addition the Department of Education and Communities is involved in many decisions that may affect the opportunities available to individuals (such as which children may attend a particular school). Any of these responsibilities has the potential to create conflicts of interest1 for employees of the Department of Education and Communities.
As employees of the Department of Education and Communities we have a responsibility to perform our roles efficiently, effectively and fairly in accordance with relevant legislation. Our personal situations, inclinations or preferences and those of our families, friends and associates should not influence us or give rise to any perceived influence when making decisions in our Departmental capacity.
Employees in the Department of Education and Communities have a responsibility to disclose any perceived or actual conflict of interest as soon as they become aware that there is or may be a potential conflict. This responsibility is explained in the Department’s Code of Conduct and additionally for Senior Executive Service Staff, the Department of Premier and Cabinet’s Code of Conduct and Ethics For Public Sector Executives.
In addition Departmental staff must comply with the Department of Education and Communities’ Statement of Business Ethics which guides employees in our dealings with the private sector.
We are accountable for the use of our powers and public resources to:
  • Ensure probity;2
  • Protect the public interest;
  • Support transparency and accountability;
  • Promote individual responsibility;
  • Lead by personal example; and
  • Build a supportive organisational culture.
A conflict of interest is not wrong in itself. It is how it is managed that is important

Managing Conflicts of Interest

We have a public duty to put the public interest above our own personal or private interests when carrying out our Departmental duties. All potential and actual conflicts of interest must be disclosed and the associated risks effectively managed.
The community has a right to expect that we will perform our duties in a fair and unbiased way, and that the decisions we make are not affected by self interest, private affiliations or the likelihood of personal gain or loss. The perception that a conflict of interest has influenced an outcome can undermine public confidence in our integrity and that of the Department of Education and Communities.
Unreported, unresolved or badly managed conflicts of interest can actually lead to corruption or abuse of our public office, a perception that these exist, embarrassment or disciplinary action.
Given the need to ensure accountability, pecuniary3 and private interests4 need to be declared where they could be reasonably expected to conflict with an employee’s duties. This is to ensure probity and conflicts of interest are appropriately managed.
The Independent Commission Against Corruption’s Toolkit on Managing Conflicts of Interest in the Public Sector, states that a common mechanism for managing potential conflicts of interest is to require certain public employees to register their pecuniary and non-pecuniary interests that may in the future conflict with some aspect of their work.
This pre-emptive measure serves to support the public interest and importantly to protect public employees. It does not in any way reflect any mistrust of employees.

Register of Pecuniary and Private Interests

In accordance with the Department’s Code of Conduct and the Code of Conduct and Ethics For Public Sector Executives, a ‘Register of Pecuniary and Private Interests’ has been established to formally register information about the following Department of Education and Communities employees:
  • All Senior Executive Service employees and Senior Officers; and
  • Employees identified by Senior Executive

Service employees and Senior Officers as an aspect of their work could give rise to a potential for conflict of interest in accordance with the Department’s Code of Conduct in relation to a pecuniary or private interest. A Senior Executive Service employee or a Senior Officer may identify another employee where their work includes, but is not limited to involvement in:

Tender evaluations (purchase costs greater than $150,000);

  • Regular identification and assessment of potential suppliers through competitive quotations (i.e. purchase costs above $1,501 and below $150,000);
  • Allocation of contract work subsequent to the competitive evaluation process;
  • Making recommendations and /or decisions about compliance actions or quality assessments of regulated early childhood education and care services;
  • Making recommendations and /or decisions in relation to regulated early childhood education and care approvals;.
  • Purchase or sale of government assets; Academic decisions affecting the significant interests of others, for example competitive placement in schools; and Recognition of prior learning panels.

If you are one of the above employees, you are to register by completing the Statement of Pecuniary and Private Interests at Attachment 1 and submit it to the Director, Audit.

Senior Executive Service employees or Senior Officers who identify an employee to complete the Statement should email the name, contact number and position title of the identified employee to the Director, Audit.

This registration does not relieve other employees of the responsibility to disclose conflicts of interest on a case by case basis or as required by a particular function or at a particular time in accordance with the Department’s Code of Conduct. This registration is in addition to the responsibilities of employees under the Department’s Private and Secondary Employment Policy.

The Director, Audit will maintain the Register of Pecuniary and Private Interests and seek updates of information from Department of Education and Communities employees on an annual basis.

No one other than the Director, Audit and the Director-General will have access to the register, except for agencies that are legislatively empowered, such as the Independent Commission Against Corruption. The information will be used by the Director, Audit for the purpose of monitoring and analysis in relation to the risk management and corruption prevention component of the role.

The information will be treated in accordance with the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 and the Department’s Privacy Code of Practice. In addition the information will be managed in accordance with the Department’s Record Management Program.

Pecuniary and private interests must be registered and maintained in a complete and accurate manner. If your interests change, please update your statement as soon as possible, but no later than one month of you becoming aware of the need to make a change.

Statements are to be updated through completion the Notification of Alteration to Statement of Pecuniary and Private Interests at Attachment 2. Failure to do so may lead to disciplinary action.

You have a right to access and amend any information you provide, and arrangements to do so can be made with the Director, Audit.

Rescinded (2017/ 06/13) Public Interest Disclosures Internal Reporting Policy

0

Type: Policy
PD Number: PD20020019
Status: TAFE POLICY UNDER REVIEW

1.Objectives – Policy Statement

1.1

Every staff member of the NSW Department of Education and Communities has an ethical responsibility to report suspected unlawful, corrupt, negligent or improper conduct, maladministration or serious and substantial waste of public money.

1.2

The department’s Public Interest Disclosures Internal Reporting Policy establishes the commitment and framework to support and protect staff who report wrongdoing.

1.3

A public interest disclosure is an allegation of corruption, maladministration, serious and substantial waste or breach of the GIPA Act made by a public official and about a public official.

2.Audience and Applicability

2.1

The internal reporting system is for the guidance of all public officials who wish to make an allegation of corruption, maladministration, serious and substantial waste or breaches of the GIPA Act within the department. It is also for the guidance of staff within the department who are delegated to receive public interest disclosures.

3.Context

3.1

This policy coupled with the Public Interest Disclosures Management Guidelines sets out the manner in which the department meets its obligations under the Public Interest Disclosures Act 1994 (PID Act).

3.2 Organisational Commitment

3.2.1

The department is committed to creating and sustaining a positive ethical climate with accountable behaviour. This comes from leadership that encourages and strongly supports the disclosure of unlawful, corrupt, negligent or improper conduct, maladministration or serious and substantial waste of public money.

Staff should be able to report suspected wrongdoing with the confidence their disclosure will be appropriately managed and they will be supported and protected in doing so.

The principle of natural justice (procedural fairness) will apply to all investigations of matters the subject of public interest disclosures. The department is committed to treating the disclosure appropriately and making the process fair for both the reporter and the person who is subject of the disclosure.

The department commits to:

  • Encouraging the internal reporting of alleged wrongdoing
  • Providing the resources necessary for those responsible for managing public interest disclosures, including awareness and training
  • Responding to disclosures thoroughly and impartially
  • Ensuring that public interest disclosures, including those made anonymously, are properly assessed and appropriately dealt with
  • Providing the reporter a copy of the department’s Public Interest Disclosures Policy and Public Interest Disclosures Management Guidelines within 45 days of the report being made
  • Keeping the identity of the reporters of wrongdoing confidential, wherever possible and appropriate
  • Protecting the integrity, wellbeing and career interest of all persons involved
  • Protecting the reporter from any adverse action as a result of making a disclosure
  • Where some form of wrongdoing has been found, taking appropriate action
  • Keeping the reporter informed of the progress and outcome of investigation of their disclosure
  • Appropriately dealing with anyone who takes reprisal action against a person who made a public interest disclosure.

3.3 Protection Against Reprisals

3.3.1

The PID Act provides protection for people reporting wrongdoing by imposing penalties on anyone who takes detrimental action proven to be substantially in reprisal for them making the public interest disclosure.

The department will not tolerate any reprisal action against staff who report wrongdoing. The criminal penalties that can be imposed include imprisonment or fines.

Detrimental action is also misconduct that justifies disciplinary action. People who take detrimental action against someone who has made a disclosure can also be required to pay damages for any loss suffered by that person.

Detrimental action means action causing, comprising or involving any of the following:

  • Injury, damage or loss
  • Intimidation or harassment
  • Discrimination, disadvantage or adverse treatment in relation to employment
  • Dismissal from, or prejudice in, employment
  • Disciplinary proceedings.

3.4Procedures for Managing Public Interest Disclosures

3.4.1

The Public Interest Disclosures Management Guidelines set out the procedures to implement this policy and identify the roles and responsibilities of all department staff in making and/or receiving public interest disclosures.

These guidelines are based on the paramount consideration that any staff member reporting wrongdoing will be supported and protected from reprisal in doing so.

3.5 Options Available to Make a Public Interest Disclosure

3.5.1

To enable staff to make a report in a confidential and supportive environment, the department has identified a number of positions as disclosure officers. The occupants of these positions are able to accept disclosures from staff who believe their report should be a public interest disclosure.

These disclosure officers occupy a broad range of positions in varying locations to provide alternatives for staff to make a report outside of their immediate workplace. The positions which act as disclosure officers are outlined in the Public Interest Disclosures Management Guidelines.
