This part of the report consists of three chapters.

Chapter 1 provides general information about the conduct of the inquiry, its background, and the scope and structure of the report.

Chapter 2 examines Australia's international foreign bribery obligations and the way in which they have been implemented through domestic law. It then outlines recent developments in anti-foreign bribery legislation before looking at relevant reports examining the effectiveness of Australia's foreign bribery framework.

Chapter 3 discusses the different roles of government departments and agencies in identifying and investigating instances of foreign bribery. It also considers the shortcomings of Australia's enforcement record in this area, and examines the adequacy of some of the government's recent initiatives to address the problem.
