Dealing with conflict of interest

It is common for public duties to conflict with private interests when working in the public sector and local government. This interactive workshop uses scenarios to illustrate the challenges in identifying and dealing with conflicts of interest. It also explores good practice approaches to recording and managing these conflicts.

Who should attend 
Managers, governance officers, team leaders, public sector and local government employees and anyone responsible for managing conflicts of interest.

Benefits from attending
Drawing from the Victorian Public Sector Commission’s resources, local government guidance and the Victorian Ombudsman’s experience, you will have a better understanding of how to:

  • create or strengthen your practices in identifying, declaring and managing conflicts of interest
  • determine what is and what is not a conflict of interest
  • understand and avoid the most common mistakes
  • identify and deal with barriers to managing conflicts of interest in your organisation.
