Each year we prepare an agency annual report for tabling in Parliament, and a chair of the board annual report. We also prepare annual reports on our activities related to assumed identities and controlled operations.
See our current and past annual reports.
The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) was transferred to the Home Affairs Portfolio on 20 December 2017, under the Administrative Arrangement Order of establishing the new Home Affairs Portfolio. The 2019–20 Portfolio Budget Statements (PBS) can be found on the Department of Home Affairs website.
The ACIC is the result of the merger between the Australian Crime Commission and CrimTrac on 1 July 2016. The PBS for previous financial years can be found on the Attorney-General’s Department website.
Endorsed by the board, our one-page strategic plan summarises how and why the ACIC was formed, our approach to achieving our purpose, our functions and the strategic objectives we are focusing on for the next five years of the plan.
The strategic plan is a keystone of our planning framework, which ensures we deliver against our strategic objectives to achieve our purpose.
Our corporate plan is our primary planning document. It is prepared in accordance with the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 and covers a four-year period, with particular focus on the current financial year.
Our corporate plan describes how we intend to achieve our purpose. It describes the environment we operate in, our strategies and activities to achieve our purpose and how we measure our performance. It also specifies plans to develop agency capabilities and describes how we manage risks.
Update on 2020–21 Corporate Plan
The ACIC Corporate Plan is our primary planning document and outlines our purpose, and the activities we will undertake to deliver on our purpose, over the coming four years.
Due to the significant impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the operations of the agency and the delay of the Federal Budget 2020–21 and Portfolio Budget Statement (PBS) to 6 October 2020, the ACIC Corporate Plan 2020–21 (Corporate Plan) will be deferred.
The ACIC has focussed considerable effort on supporting the COVID-19 Pandemic response through ensuring our national policing information systems and services remained available to police partners through this crucial time and collecting, analysing and disseminating intelligence about the serious organised crime risks as a consequence of the COVD-19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had devastating impacts on the Australian economy, including lowering the employment rate nationally. This has resulted in a significant reduction in the National Police Information Systems and Services Special Account (NPISSSA) revenue, which is mainly sourced from the National Police Checking Service (NPCS) related to background checking for employment and entitlement services.
The ACIC has been undertaking modelling to understand the extent and duration of the revenue impacts to develop its program of forward activities for national policing information systems and services.
In addition, the ACIC was intending to use the 2020 PBS process to outline a number of changes to its performance measures over the forward years. To proceed with this process in line with the revised PBS timetable, and allow time for the impacts of COVID-19 on NPISSSA revenue to be more fully understood, the ACIC will release its Corporate Plan by 15 October 2020.
This will allow us to comprehensively outline how we will meet the Government’s expectations while continuing our activities to respond to criminal activity impacting Australia moving past COVID-19.
Informed by our strategic plan, our corporate plan is central to our planning framework.
