Strategic Review of the Integrity Commissioner’s Functions

The Integrity Act 2009 provides that a Strategic Review be undertaken at least every 5 years of the Integrity Commissioner’s functions. The purpose of the strategic review is to consider whether the functions are being performed economically, effectively, and efficiently.

The review is being conducted independently by Kevin Yearbury.

The Integrity Commissioner has two primary functions:

  • To provide advice to ‘designated persons’ about ethics or integrity issues.
  • To administer the lobbyists register and monitor the interaction of lobbyists with government representatives and key representatives for the opposition.

The review is required to examine: 

  • the structural and operational aspects of the Integrity Commissioner role and its relationship with public sector entities, relevant Ministers, Assistant Ministers, the Parliamentary Committee, and the Legislative Assembly,
  • the Integrity Commissioner’s functions and the Commissioner’s performance of them to assess whether they are being performed economically, effectively, and efficiently, and
  • whether existing legislative provisions are appropriate and effective in regulating contact between lobbyists and government and opposition representatives (including by former government and opposition representatives), having regard to public expectations of transparency and integrity.

Submissions to the review are now closed.
