Official and administrative integrity

Violations of integrity can result from conflicts of interest, but can also occur ‘by accident’. Violations of integrity can have consequences for local security, for example because physically hazardous situations can arise or persist (permits for unsafe buildings or operations), criminal groups gain sufficient room for manoeuvre (inadequate Public Administration (Probity Screening) Act procedures).

Violations of integrity can result from conflicts of interest, but can also result from the ‘unintentional’ weakening of processes, when the violation of integrity is more or less ‘accidental’. Violations of integrity can have consequences for local security, for example because physically hazardous situations can arise or persist (permits for unsafe buildings or operations), criminal groups gain sufficient room for manoeuvre (inadequate Public Administration (Probity Screening) Act procedures), or officials or administrators become vulnerable to further damage to their integrity.
