On 4 April 2022, the Independent Commission Against Corruption commenced an evaluation of the practices, policies and procedures of TAFE SA.

TAFE SA is South Australia’s largest vocational education and training provider, delivering courses to more than 60,000 students.  It engages around 2000 staff and operates 30 campuses across the state.

Terms of reference

The evaluation will examine:

  1. The extent to which TAFE SA’s governance framework adequately guards against the risks of corruption.
  2. TAFE SA’s practices, policies and procedures in respect of:
    1. Human resources management
    2. Procurement and contract management
    3. Asset and facilities management

    and whether those practices, policies and procedures provide effective controls against corruption.

  3. The manner in which TAFE SA claims and reports on the subsidy payments it receives from government.

  4. The framework in place to manage relationships between staff and students and whether those processes are adequate to guard against inappropriate enrolments, assessments, qualifications, and awards of licenses, certificates, diplomas and associate degrees.

The terms of reference may be amended during the course of the evaluation.
