Integrity policies and procedures

This page is under construction. Please contact PPR​ with any questions.

The Department of Education is committed to the maintenance of high standards of integrity, conduct and fiduciary responsibility. This is managed through a collection of tools (legislation, policies, procedures, etc.), which together determine how the department and its staff are to behave on a daily basis, and that help us to build an integrity-based culture that will resist fraud and corruption.
