Fraud and Corruption Control Policy Statement
The Major Transport Infrastructure Authority (MTIA) has compliance, ethical and performance obligations to minimise fraud and corruption. It also recognises its fiduciary responsibility to safeguard the assets (including funds and information) that belong to the people of Victoria.
This policy statement complements and must be read in conjunction with the Code of Conduct for the Victorian Public Sector and the MTIA Leadership Integrity Statement.
MTIA has fraud prevention policies, procedures and controls in place to minimise the possibility of the occurrence of fraud and corruption. However, it is recognised that the best method of detecting fraud is through observation and reporting by its people, contractors, suppliers and members of the public.
MTIA policies and procedures are in place to facilitate the prevention, detection, reporting and investigation of suspected cases of fraud and corruption. The Public Interest Disclosures Act 2012 (Vic) encourages and facilitates such disclosures including the provision of protections to persons from detrimental action taken in reprisal for those disclosures.

All MTIA persons must:
- read, understand and work actively to comply with all relevant policies and procedures
- help create an effective internal control environment by participating in, where appropriate, the design, implementation and monitoring of fraud and corruption control activities
- cooperate in fraud enquiries or investigations as required
- attend all mandatory integrity (including fraud) training and awareness sessions.
MTIA encourages its people, contractors, suppliers, and members of the public to be alert to fraud red flags and report suspicions of fraud and corruption.
