Who can make a report

Anyone can submit a corruption report to us or provide other information about a corruption issue. Please use our webform to make a report of corrupt conduct, regardless of whether you are a member of the public or an agency head.

We encourage you to report anything you think might be a corruption issue. Please understand it is not our role to act on your behalf to resolve individual disputes. 

If you are unable to use the form yourself, please call us to lodge your report. Our team will fill out the webform on your behalf. 

The National Relay and Translating and Interpreting services can make this call if you need their help.

There are mandatory reporting requirements for

  • agency heads 
  • agency heads of intelligence agencies, and
  • Public Interest Disclosure officers

to refer questions of serious or systemic corruption to the NACC.

Minimum requirements

There is minimum essential information you must provide in a report. There are two mandatory questions where we ask you to describe the alleged conduct and tell us why you think it is corrupt conduct.  However, the more detail you can provide and the more questions you can answer, the better.

Anonymous reports are possible on the form, but please appreciate that this means we will be unable to contact you to discuss your report or seek additional information from you.

If you choose to be contactable, we need at least one way to reach you – a phone number or an email address.

The webform asks you to tell us if you have any documentation or evidence to support your report. If we want some or all of that information, we will contact you.

Support services 

If someone's life is in immediate danger call 000 or visit a hospital emergency department. Many of the reports the Commission receives involve distressing issues. We encourage you to seek support when and if you need it. The below services are widely recommended as a good place to start:
