The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission governance framework supports performance across the agency, while ensuring that key accountability requirements are met.

In order to ensure that the agency uses its powers responsibly, effectively and in accordance with the law at all times, the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission is properly subject to significant internal and external oversight.

Executive oversight includes:

Legal services expenditure

In July 2016 the Australian Crime Commission and CrimTrac merged to become the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission.

Reports on Australian Crime Commission and CrimTrac legal services expenditure for the 2015-16 financial year are set out below:

Senate File Lists

In accordance with ‘Senate Continuing Order’, as varied by the Senate on 3 December 1998, relevant new files created for the agency are listed on the Senate File Lists section of this website.

Senate Order on Departmental and Agency Contracts

In accordance with the Senate Order on departmental and agency contracts, the below table set out contracts entered into by the Australian Crime Commission with a value of $100 000 or more, and which:

  • have not been fully completed as at the reporting date
  • have been entered into during the 12 months prior to the reporting date.

The table also provides details of the value for each contract, the contractor and subject matter of each contract, and confidentiality provisions.

Senate Order on entity contracts listing for 2015-16 financial year

Pursuant to the Senate Order on non-corporate Commonwealth entity contracts, the downloadable file lists non-procurement contracts entered into by the Attorney-General's Department which provide for a consideration of $100,000 or more and which:

  • have not been fully performed as at 30 June 2016 or
  • have been entered into during the 12 months prior to 30 June 2016.

All procurement contracts required to be listed pursuant to the Senate Order can be found on the AusTender website.

Most of the contracts listed contain confidentiality provisions of a general nature that are designed to protect the confidential information of the parties that may be obtained or generated in carrying out the contract. The reasons for including such clauses include:

  • ordinary commercial prudence that requires protection of trade secrets, proprietary information and the like
  • protection of other Commonwealth material and personal information.

The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission has estimated its cost of complying with the Senate Order is $450. This is determined by calculating the time taken to collect, analyse and compile the information and applying salary costs and on-costs.
