A Defence probe has been launched into allegations of fraud at the Australian Army's recruit training centre.
The investigation is focused on the Adventurous Training Wing (ATW), a sub-unit of the Army Recruit Training Centre based in Kapooka, NSW.
An internal report detailed complaints of financial irregularities and alleged the involvement of private training provider Group 314, the ABC reports.
In a statement, chief executive Kit Marshall said Group 314 was not under active investigation by the Australian Defence Force and had not been provided details of any allegations or asked to contribute to any probe.
"We have been advised by the ADF that Group 314 does not have a case to answer in these matters," he said.
"The allegations were false, have been proved to be false, and the investigation closed.
"Allegations of fraud and corruption are baseless, malicious, and most likely from disgruntled junior members of the army."
A Defence spokesperson confirmed the ATW was the subject of an investigation by the Fraud Control and Investigations Branch from May to September this year.
"The army is undertaking a further review of ATW matters, therefore it would be premature to comment at this time," the spokesperson said.
"The inspector-general of the ADF is not currently examining this matter."
