Message from the CEO

The City of Sydney has zero tolerance of fraudulent or corrupt conduct by its City councillors, employees, volunteers, contractors and suppliers to the City. Further, the City does not tolerate detrimental action taken against people who come forward to report suspicions of such conduct.

We are committed to a high standard of ethical and accountable conduct and will support and protect the reporting of wrongdoing.

We will take action to detect, investigate and discipline fraudulent and corrupt conduct. Where appropriate or required by law, we will report fraudulent and corrupt conduct to the Independent Commission Against Corruption and the NSW Police Force.

If you wish to provide information about suspected fraudulent or corrupt conduct, please contact a member of our Governance team or fill in our online reporting form.

Alternatively, we respect your decision to disclose alleged wrongdoing through external reporting avenues.
