A quarter of public servants say at least one incident of fraud or corruption has taken place in their workplace in the last two years, a survey reveals.
New Zealand is consistently ranked as the least-corrupt country in international indices.
But a report from the Office of the Auditor-General reveals that almost a third of those working in local government, almost 29 per cent in central government and 8 per cent in schools are aware of colleagues having committed fraud.
