National Anti-Corruption Commission

The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) is an independent agency that prevents, detects, investigates and reports on serious or systemic corruption across the Commonwealth public sector. It educates the public service, and the public, about corruption risks and prevention. The NACC is independent from government. This means the government cannot tell the NACC what to investigate (or what not to investigate), or how to do its job. The NACC will be able to investigate alleged corruption and report on what it finds. The NACC is led by a Commissioner and up to three Deputy Commissioners, with support from a Chief Executive Officer.
