The ICAC's mission is to combat corruption and improve the integrity of the NSW public sector.
The ICAC's role is to investigate, expose and minimise corruption in the NSW public sector.
Responsibility for the management of corruption risks rests with individual organisations. The ICAC directs its attention to serious and systemic corrupt conduct and takes into account the responsibility and role of other public officials and authorities in the prevention of corrupt conduct.
