The Victorian Commission of Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) has taken out the Institute of Public Administration Australia’s (IPAA) 2018 Innovative Regulation Award.

The award recognised the VCGLR’s innovative approach to risk-prioritisation through its digital compliance tool which is used by the VCGLR to better identify licensed venues that are of higher risk of harm.

The tool brings together data from a range of sources to help to inform decisions about the venues our inspectors visit, when they are visited and why they are visiting them.

The IPAA Leadership awards highlight excellence and innovation of teams and organisations working in and with the Victorian Public Sector.

A spokesperson for the regulator said: “The VCGLR is proud to have been recognised for our innovative approach to regulation and targeting our resources to reduce harm.”
