Preparations begin for National Anti-Corruption Commission

The Hon Mark Dreyfus KC MP
Media Release

This week the Government will begin the search for Australia’s first National Anti-Corruption Commissioner.

This is a necessary step to achieve our aim of having the National Anti-Corruption Commission up and running by mid-2023.

The Attorney-General’s Department will also commence advertising for the Commission’s other statutory roles.

Any appointments will be subject to the passage of the National Anti-Corruption Commission legislation and approval by the Parliamentary Joint Committee.

This will be a merit-based, transparent and robust recruitment process, adhering to the highest standards of integrity and accountability.

The Government is casting the widest possible net to ensure the Commission is led by the most capable and qualified people, consistent with our commitment to restoring transparency and merit to statutory appointments.
