About Corruption Prevention Network
Corruption Prevention Network of NSW
CPN (Our roots)
The Corruption Prevention Network of NSW (CPN) came into being in 1994 when practitioners together with officers from the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) and Audit Office began meeting to consider how best to address systemic issues repeatedly exposed in internal and external investigations.
Since that time we have evolved into what we are today, an incorporated body operating through an organising committee of elected volunteers.
(What we do)
Our primary purpose is to support anti-fraud and corruption practitioners throughout the state of NSW, to better understand the current issues and techniques in today’s market place and bridge the gap between public and private sectors by highlighting risks that span both industries.
(What we offer)
We interact with practitioners and members in a number of ways, but all for the same purpose, to raise awareness in skill, capability and to inform on current and emerging fraud and corruption risks.
So if you’d like to subscribe to our membership this is what we offer you,
- Free attendance at our face to face seminars, conducted monthly for our subscribership to attend.
- We also have links to a great many research documents and material sourced from agencies,
- Regular communications to our membership through our website, and
- An invitation to attend our annual forum, (usually held in September) which is open to all members and practitioners to attend for a smaller than average fee.
We are very proud of our yearly forum and like to think it is a one-day cost effective event that delivers value for money. We try to cater for all levels of experience, with presentations ranging from the latest prevention, detection and response techniques together with some of the more prevalent risks and issues within the market place today. It will also provide you with different perspectives and insights to make you more effective in the preventive work that you do.
(What we’ll offer the future?)
We are looking to expand our offering in the future to members by providing video conferencing capability to our monthly seminars and our annual forum. That way we can reach a far greater audience outside of Sydney and has been a popular request of our subscribership in the past. However this capability is very expensive and consequently we may start with a much reduced service being just the forum, so watch this space, we’ll keep you informed how we are going.
(How are we funded?)
The CPN converts all profit made at our annual forum and its sponsorships back into its work into supporting members with better resources and tools to prevent corruption, by supporting us, you help us to better service the community in preventing corruption.
