This audit would assess the implementation of the Australian Public Service (APS) ethical framework by the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations. The APS ethical framework comprises the legal framework (the basis of which is the Public Service Act 1999 and the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013); activity-specific frameworks (such as the Commonwealth Procurement Rules and Commonwealth Grants Rules and Guidelines); government policies; and entity-specific frameworks (including the requirements of enabling legislation, accountable authority Instructions, and other internal policies).

This is part of a series of audits around the implementation of ethical frameworks in APS agencies.
