Transparent decision-making, and integrity and accountability in politics must be at the centre of our political system.
We must address the problems of undue influence of industry bodies and lobby groups.
Recognition of the structural distortion caused by “pork barrelling” and work to eradicate it from our grants processes.
To adequately ensure integrity, transparency and accountability, the government must implement the following five actions:
enact an independent funding body to set funding of NSW ICAC and other oversight bodies in order to ensure independence and long-term appropriate resourcing;
- introduce performance standards for ICAC, with transparent public reporting, to minimise delays in finalising inquiries;
legislation of grants administration to ensure funding is granted solely on merit:
- any allocation of grant funding which departs from public service recommendations should be explained publicly, and in a timely and transparent fashion;
- ban political donations from registered clubs in NSW by extending the meaning of ‘prohibited donors’ in Electoral Funding laws;
- end the ‘jobs for mates’ culture by overhauling public appointment processes.
