Open Government Partnership Australia

4.2 - National Integrity Framework


4.2 - National Integrity Framework

This commitment will strengthen Australia’s ability to prevent, detect and respond to corruption in the public sector. We plan to do so by collaborating with the corporate sector, non-government organisations, academia and the public, including by holding the first Government Business Roundtable on Anti-Corruption in 2017.

We will also review the jurisdiction and capabilities of our key anti-corruption bodies, the Australian Commission for Law Enforcement Integrity (ACLEI) and the Australian Federal Police (AFP)-led Fraud and Anti-Corruption Centre (FACC), with the development of each National Action Plan to ensure they can focus on protecting Commonwealth agencies from risks of corruption.

This commitment will advance the OGP value of public accountability by improving the effectiveness of our legal, regulatory and institutional frameworks and by protecting the integrity and transparency of the execution of public policy and management.
