What is the role of the agency?

The agency has 3 main roles to play:

  • facilitate a prompt and efficient inquiry by providing contact details for the individual (and any witnesses), documents and other evidence.
  • provide information on the agency's policy framework, its guidance to staff on proper conduct and its operating environment.
    This includes the agency's risk consideration for particular types of conduct, such as corruption, privacy, bullying and harassment.
  • pay for the cost of the inquiry.
