11th Investigating misconduct in the public sector
Registrations are now open for the 11th National Investigations Symposium (NIS) in November 2016 at the Four Seasons Sydney.
A joint initiative by the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption; NSW Ombudsman; and Institute of Public Administration Australia NSW, the Symposium presents an opportunity for public sector investigators and complaint handlers to increase their investigative knowledge, skills and techniques, and gain insight while networking with fellow practitioners.
The two-day Symposium on 9 and 10 November 2016 will feature thought provoking Australian and international speakers in a plenary session and four concurrent streams. On day one, hear keynote speaker Travis Tygart from the United States Anti-Doping Agency speak about his investigation into the seven-time Tour de France winner, Lance Amstrong. On day two, Dame Beverley Wakem, Chief Ombudsman of New Zealand, will highlight investigative techniques in difficult situations such as ‘closed environments’ and there will be a concluding plenary panel discussion facilitated by Chris Masters.
The Symposium provides ample opportunities to establish new contacts and nurture existing networks.
