Urbis is working in support of Victoria’s Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) to better understand the factors that influence the prevention and reporting of corruption in public office.

IBAC is charged with preventing and exposing public sector corruption and police misconduct. Urbis will be working with IBAC to undertake research aimed at informing efforts to prevent corruption and increase reporting across IBAC’s key stakeholder groups: local and state government employees, police and the broader Victorian community.

The work builds on prior research undertaken by IBAC, and brings together Urbis’ quantitative and qualitative research capabilities, and depth of understanding of the Victorian public service context.

“We see this as critically important project for those interested in public service integrity,” says Urbis Director Claire Grealy, “we’re very pleased to have the opportunity to contribute”.

The project will explore attitudes toward and behaviours in reporting corruption, and will include segmentation of IBAC’s key stakeholder groups to strengthen the design, delivery and evaluation of prevention efforts.
