About us

Our purpose is to:

  • provide assurance that the agencies and entities we oversee act with integrity and treat people fairly
  • influence systemic improvement in government administration.

We aim to achieve our purpose by:

  • independently and impartially reviewing complaints and disclosures about government administrative action
  • influencing government agencies to be accountable, lawful, fair, transparent and responsive
  • providing a level of assurance that law enforcement, integrity and regulatory agencies are complying with legal requirements when using covert, intrusive and coercive powers.
