Model and embody a culture of integrity

This part of the integrity framework is where an authority shapes and manages its culture to support and enhance integrity. An authority with a culture built on integrity and proactively managed is more resistant to misconduct and corruption.

This section covers:

3.1 values and standards
3.2 leadership and management attitude
3.3 organisation culture.

[…] culture matters because breaches of integrity damage the trust that the public has in government. A culture must be developed across the sector in which corruption is identified and not tolerated. Culture pervades every activity in an organisation, and impacts on the attitudes of staff and management as to how they do their jobs. Culture influences whether lip service is paid to compliance, accountability and integrity or whether these measures are genuinely implemented in the spirit intended.
