Contracts with senior officers
At the date of reporting, other than normal contracts of employment of service, no senior officers, or firms of which senior officers are members, or entities in which senior officers have substantial interests, had any interests in existing or proposed contracts with the Commission and senior officers.
Unauthorised use of credit cards
Officers of the Commission hold corporate credit cards where their functions warrant usage of this facility. Despite each cardholder being aware of their obligations under the Commission’s credit card policy, two employees inadvertently utilised the corporate credit card for personal expenses. The matter was not referred for disciplinary action as the Chief Finance Officer noted prompt advice and settlement of the personal use amount, and, that the nature of the expenditure was immaterial and characteristic of an honest mistake.
