Pursuant to paragraph 215(1)(d) of the Law Enforcement Integrity Commissioner Act 2006 the committee will inquire into the corruption vulnerabilities of Australia's law enforcement agencies, with particular reference to:

  1. the January 2021 expansion of ACLEI's jurisdiction from five to nine law enforcement agencies, including the support given to, and effectiveness of, agencies undertaking new responsibilities in working collaboratively with ACLEI in detecting, investigating and preventing corruption;
  2. the additional corruption vulnerabilities that may exist from the contracting of services or functions by law enforcement agencies to external service providers;
  3. what systems or processes are in place within law enforcement agencies to identify, report and investigate potential corruption within external service providers;
  4. whether there are similar corruption vulnerabilities in partnerships between law enforcement agencies and other government agencies who are not subject to ACLEI's powers for investigation; and
  5. any other relevant matter.
