Investigation reports

When a public inquiry occurs or an investigation originates from a referral from both Houses of the NSW Parliament, the ICAC must provide a report to the Parliament. Reports may also be prepared about any other ICAC investigation or matter.

ICAC investigation reports may include:

  • findings of corrupt conduct in relation to individuals investigated

  • recommendations that consideration be given to the prosecution of or taking of disciplinary or dismissal action against individuals investigated

  • recommendations to agencies and public officials for changes in systems and procedures to prevent future corrupt conduct.

The Commission aims to furnish at least 80 per cent of its section 74 reports to the Presiding Officers of Parliament as follows: 

  • for a public inquiry of five days or less, within 80 days of the receipt of final submissions, and

  • for a public inquiry of more than five days, within 180 days of the receipt of final submissions.

If the report is made public, it is then published and made available from this website.

All ICAC investigation reports published in the last 10 years are also available from this site. Older reports are available on request by calling (02) 8281 5999 or emailing a request to icac@icac.nsw.gov.au.

After making corruption prevention recommendations the ICAC monitors their implementation by the public authorities concerned.

The ICAC also prepares briefs of evidence for submission to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for consideration of prosecutions arising from an investigation and liaises with the DPP on these matters.
