In December 2022, the Government announced that Mr Philip Strickland KC would be the Inspector appointed under the newly proclaimed Schedule 4 of the ICAC Act.

The Inspector will conduct an annual review of the Commission’s operations and investigate any complaints received by his office relating to the conduct of the Commission or the Office for Public Integrity or the Ombudsman.

Additionally, the Inspector can undertake reviews of the Ombudsman, initiate reviews on his own motion, and conduct any other reviews requested by the Attorney-General or the Crime and Public Integrity Policy Committee.

Commissioner Vanstone looks forward to working with the Inspector.
