EPISODE 3 | OVERSIGHT AGENCIES | 14 OCTOBER 2021

An enduring integrity system is critical to supporting a consistent approach to integrity across the APS and maintaining public trust. Oversight agencies play an important role in this system as they provide assurance that the APS integrity frameworks, processes and policies work. This episode explores the different roles, responsibilities and relationships of oversight agencies. We’re joined by Michael Manthorpe PSM, Deputy President of IPAA ACT and former Commonwealth Ombudsman, Graeme Head AO, Partner at EY Port Jackson Partners and former NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commissioner, and John Hoitink, Chief Executive Officer of the ACT Integrity Commission. They speak with the Series host, Rina Bruinsma, First Assistant Commissioner at the Australian Public Service Commission. Our guests reflect on the importance of a steadfast integrity system and challenges and opportunities ahead. This includes how to best support APS employees in their understanding of, and engagement with the system.
