Checklist for reporting suspected corrupt conduct

The following checklist will assist you in identifying the required information that should be submitted to enable the ICAC to decide what action it may take.

1. Name and contact details (optional) 
Anyone is entitled to make an anonymous complaint but this may affect the effectiveness of the investigation, as the ICAC may need to verify matters, or obtain further information that can be difficult without contact details. In addition, the ICAC will not be able to advise the complainant of any decisions or action on the matter. The complainant must inform the ICAC of any changes in their contact details.

2. Names of department/agency and or entity and public sector officials involved
Provide the names and positions of the officials (if known) said to be involved in the corrupt conduct.

3. How you became aware of the matter
Include any relevant dates and the name and position of any person with whom you interacted or observed.

4. A summary of the matter
Include names, any relevant dates, locations and all other relevant information.

5. Other people aware of the matter
Include the names and contact details of other people who may be able to assist the ICAC.

6. Other organisations contacted
Provide the names of any organisations or regulators that the matter was reported to, the date of contact and their response.

7.Documentary evidence
Include details on any relevant documents or other information that may establish or prove misconduct or may otherwise help the ICAC in its assessment.

8.Private citizens and companies involved
Provide the names, contact details and participation of private individuals and or companies involved.

9.Consent to disclose identity (optional)
If the ICAC refers the complaint to another agency or decides to investigate, the complainant may need to be identified as the source of information.

Please note that while the ICAC will consider any wishes for the identity to be kept confidential, if it is in the public interest to do so, the ICAC may disclose this information to another agency.

Staff of the ICAC may also contact the person who made the complainant to obtain more information or a statement.
