DIY Ethical Compliance Framework (2-day) Workshop – Dubbo, NSW

October 27, 2016 @ 9:30 am - October 28, 2016 @ 4:30 pm


Developing an ethical/integrity framework for an organisation not only helps you comply with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission (ACNC) regulatory requirements but builds your organisation’s good reputation in the midst of sector reforms.

You don’t need to commission expensive professional service firms to establish this framework. It is something that you can do with the right professional guidance and a little time out from your regular activities. This course will take you from learning about industry tools and techniques to drafting your organisation’s integrity framework, ready for refining in sessions with your board and staff.

This course will allow participants to:

  • Understand what is involved in establishing an ethical/integrity framework that meets government/funder and Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission (ACNC) governance requirements.
  • Build internal and external support for the framework.
  • Draft your organisation’s policies and procedures relevant to the framework, tailored to the work of your organisation.
  • Develop a plan for staff and board consultations that will refine the framework and integrate it within the governance systems of the organisation.
  • Develop a capacity building plan to effectively implement and monitor the framework. • Deal effectively with allegations against your service in a way that that builds your good reputation in the community and with government.
  • Understand and deal with government probity and accountability requirements.
  • Learn the principles of internal investigations and anti-corruption.

Target Group: Board members, CEOs, Managers, Centre Coordinators, Risk/Compliance/HR Managers/workers

Learning Outcomes:
Participants will gain:

  • Awareness of compliance and good practice requirements for professional integrity frameworks, including anti-fraud, anti-corruption and ethical practice.
  • Knowledge of how to develop the framework and build the capacity of the organisation to effectively implement it.
  • The ability to produce relevant policies and procedures, including those related to the Code of Conduct, reporting processes systems, conflict of interest management, gifts and benefits, secondary employments and internal investigations.
