Lifestyle audits for government employees are set to begin from February next year.
The audits are aimed at ensuring that public servants, including ministers, premiers and MECs, live according to their reported incomes.
According to the Public Service Commission, audits are a critical management tool to identify staff members who, based on extravagant lifestyles, may potentially be engaging in unlawful activities.
The audits will help to strengthen the country’s already existing financial disclosure framework that assists in determining conflict of interests.
