On 28 September 2022, the National Anti-Corruption Commission Bill 2022 and National Anti-Corruption Commission (Consequential and Transitional Provisions) Bill 2022 were introduced to Parliament.

The Bills would establish the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) and provide for the transitional arrangements for the Australian Commission for Law Enforcement Integrity (ACLEI) to be subsumed into the NACC.

The NACC will have broad jurisdiction to investigate public sector corruption, as well as prevention and education functions to bolster anti-corruption efforts in the Commonwealth public sector. Subject to the passage of the legislation, the NACC is expected to be established in mid-2023.
