ACLEI undertakes criminal and corruption investigations. We do not have a complaint handling role and we cannot help individuals achieve personal remedies or resolve disputes.
You do not have to provide ACLEI with your name when you provide us with information about a corruption issue. However, information given anonymously may be more difficult to investigate. If you do not want to give your name, you may provide an alias. We also strongly suggest you provide a way for ACLEI to contact you.
The information you provide to ACLEI will be handled in accordance with relevant privacy laws and the LEIC Act. Please be aware that the Integrity Commissioner may be required under the LEIC Act to provide information about your complaint to the head of the agency it refers to. If you have concerns about your information being shared, please email contact [at] aclei.gov.au to clarify PRIOR to sending your complaint.
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.
