On 1 November 2021 the Independent Commission Against Corruption will commence an evaluation of the practices, policies and procedures of Super SA.

As the administrator of superannuation schemes for over 210,000 South Australians, Super SA performs an important function in South Australian public administration. It is essential that Super SA has effective systems in place to prevent corruption.

Super SA is a branch of the Department of Treasury and Finance (the Department), and provides administrative services to the South Australian Superannuation Board, otherwise known as the Super SA Board. Given that both the Department and the Super SA Board have responsibility for Super SA, and provide direction to Super SA employees, the evaluation will concern the practices, policies and procedures of both the Chief Executive of the Department and the Board.

Scope of the evaluation

The evaluation will review and report on:

  1. The extent to which Super SA’s governance framework adequately guards against the risks of corruption.
  2. Super SA’s practices, policies and procedures in respect of:
    1. Human resources management (including recruitment)
    2. Project management
    3. Contract management
    4. Information management

    and whether practices, policies and procedures in these four areas provide appropriate safeguards to control against corruption.

The ICAC Commissioner may amend the scope of the evaluation following the receipt and consideration of materials gathered.
