If you disagree with an IBAC decision
Our service charter explains what to expect when you make a complaint to IBAC.
Regardless of your complaint's outcome, the information you give us helps to identify broader trends and patterns so we can warn the public sector about where corruption might be happening in their organisations and practices, and their potential vulnerabilities.
We don't usually explain why we're not going to investigate a complaint, but it's generally because it:
- didn't involve corrupt conduct or police misconduct
- isn't about who we can investigate
- lacked substance or credibility
- is frivolous or vexatious
- has already been dealt with by us or another agency.
See section 67 of the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission Act 2011 (Vic) for a list of all the reasons IBAC may decide not to investigate.
