What we do


The ICAC helps NSW public sector agencies and individuals prevent corruption by providing advice and building an agency's resistance to corruption through training and resources.


The ICAC uses a range of investigative techniques to expose corrupt conduct and it has been afforded significant statutory powers to do so. ICAC investigations focus on matters that are serious and systemic.

Our mission

Our mission is to combat corruption and improve the integrity of the NSW public sector.
