NSW local and state government - conflicts between public duty and private interest

The ICAC investigated the nature of conflicts between public duty and private interest which arose in the period 1 January 1985 and 30 March 1991, and the manner in which they were dealt with, within local government, involving both state and local government and involving both local government and the private sector.

The ICAC's report on this investigation, made public in March 1992, made recommendations for change, particularly the establishing of a Local Government Tribunal empowered to inquire into allegations of, or circumstances suggesting any such breach, with power to disqualify, suspend, reprimand, or counsel the individual concerned, or dismiss the allegation. The report also made recommendations, particularly to changes in laws, practices and procedures, in local government.
