In line with the Public Service Act 1999 all FWBC staff are expected to comply with the APS Values and Code of Conduct.
The APS Values and Code of Conduct are published on the FWBC website and intranet and are included in job information kits provided to prospective employees. They are explained to new staff in induction programs and underpin a number of internal policies and procedures, including:
determining breaches of the Code of Conduct
email and internet use protocol
conflict of interest policy
giving and receiving gifts
FWBC provides staff with ongoing information and training in the APS Values, Code of Conduct and Workplace Diversity.
FWBC is represented on the Australian Public Service Commission (APSC) Ethics Contact Officer Network (ECONET) by Murray Gregor, Executive Director Operations (Eastern). This network promotes the Government’s ethical agenda which focuses on enhancing ethics and accountability in the Commonwealth Public Sector.
