Australia: Army’s Kapooka training base hit by fraud and corruption allegations

Alleged fraud and corruption worth hundreds of thousands of dollars at the Australian Army’s main recruit training base are being investigated by the Defence Department.

The ABC can reveal “adventurous training” contracts between the Army Recruit Training Centre (ATRC) at Kapooka and a private firm based in Wagga Wagga are being scrutinised.

An internal Defence Department report from March details evidence of invoices being submitted “for services that have not been delivered or for expense outside of contract”.

The 48-page document, seen by the ABC, reveals complaints of financial irregularities were first raised by a member of the Army’s Adventurous Training Wing in 2019.
