ACLEI does not have a complaint handling role and is not oriented specifically to achieving a personal remedy or resolution for an informant.

Any information provided to ACLEI is received in-confidence.

A person providing information about a corruption issue to ACLEI does not have to give a name, yet should be aware that information given anonymously may be more difficult to investigate. If a person does not want to give their name, they may provide an alias and should arrange a way for further contact to be made.

The Integrity Commissioner seeks to ensure that all corruption issues are properly addressed. All information provided to ACLEI is assessed for its suitability for investigation and may be retained or collated with other information to inform decision-making at a later date. The guidelines used by internal decision-makers in regards to notification and referrals provided to the Integrity Commissioner can be found here.Sometimes it may be preferable to pass the information provided (or part of it) onto another government agency better suited to investigate it. If that action may cause a concern, it can be discussed with ACLEI at the time of providing the information.
