Australia's approach to anti-corruption - UNITED NATIONS

National Anti-Corruption Plan

 Corruption is a serious global problem, which has devastating impacts for individuals, families, communities and regions. It discourages investment and distorts markets, leading to depletion of resources for important community services like schools, hospitals and roads.

In combating corruption, the Australian Government takes a leadership role at the international, regional and domestic levels.

At the international level, Australia is a party to both the UN Convention against Corruption and the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention. Australia is a key member of the G20 Anti-Corruption Working Group having participated in the negotiation and development of the G20 Anti-Corruption Action Plan. In cooperation with China and Indonesia, Australia is currently leading a review of G20 priorities to strengthen international cooperation against corruption, and is also working on the development of the G20 Guide to Mutual Legal Assistance. Furthermore, Australia is an active member of the APEC Anti-Corruption Working Group and the OECD Working Group on Bribery in International Business Transactions.

At the regional level, Australia is committed to working with partner governments to support their own efforts against corruption. Effective governance is one of the five key strategic goals of the Australian Government’s aid program. Australia provides around A$1 billion each year to assist partner countries to strengthen their governance and anti-corruption systems.

While Australia has a strong record of domestic action to prevent and expose corruption in both the public and private sectors, the Government is conscious that we must not be complacent. In order to ensure Australia continues to be a leader in anti-corruption activities, the former Minister for Home Affairs announced the development of a National Anti-Corruption Plan.

National Anti-Corruption Plan

In September 2011, the Australian Government announced the commitment of $700,000 to develop and implement Australia’s first National Anti-Corruption Plan.

A key objective of the Plan is to strengthen Australia’s existing governance arrangements by developing a whole-of-government policy and plan on anti-corruption.

The Australian Government’s approach to combating corruption is based on a multi-agency approach, which vests responsibilities for anti-corruption policies and initiatives with a number of Commonwealth agencies.

A comprehensive National Anti-Corruption Plan will bring the relevant agencies together under a cohesive framework and strengthen the Government’s capacity to identify and address corruption risks.

Consultation Process

The development of the National Anti-Corruption Plan is being led by a team from the Attorney-General’s Department, in consultation with other Commonwealth, State and Territory agencies and other interested stakeholders. In developing the Plan we will examine evolving corruption threats to Australia’s national interests and ways that all levels of government can reduce corruption risks.

The Australian Government is committed to extensive public consultation on the development of Australia’s National Anti-Corruption Plan. We encourage all interested stakeholders to take the opportunity to provide input into this important document. The public consultation process officially commenced at an event held on 9 December 2011 to mark International Anti Corruption Day. Details of the public consultation process and speeches from the day can be found at the bottom of this page.

As part of the consultation process the Department released a discussion paper on 19 March 2012, and sought written public submissions. The discussion paper outlines the Commonwealth’s current multi-agency approach to corruption, examines the interactions between all levels of government on corruption, and explores recent anti-corruption initiatives.

Community views were sought on the following specific questions:

  • In the context of the Commonwealth’s multi-agency approach to anti-corruption, could policy coordination and leadership be improved? If so how?
  • What are the most important corruption threats to Commonwealth interests?
  • To what extent is the Commonwealth vulnerable to those threats?
  • Are risk mitigation strategies adequate? If not, how could they be improved?
  • Is there anything else about Commonwealth anti-corruption policies, programs or organisational arrangements you would like to discuss?

The received submissions can be accessed from this page.

United Nations Convention against Corruption Review

The UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) is the first binding global instrument on corruption. It establishes mechanisms to prevent and criminalise corruption as well as international cooperation and asset recovery mechanisms to combat corruption. Australia signed UNCAC on 9 December 2003 and ratified on 7 December 2005. States Parties are required to undergo a review of their implementation of key chapters of UNCAC every five years.

In 2011-2012 Australia’s compliance with Chapters III (Criminalisation & Law Enforcement) and IV (International Cooperation) was under review. From 5-9 March 2012 a review team comprised of officials from the US, Turkey and the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) travelled to Australia to conduct discussions with Australian subject matter experts and assess Australia’s compliance with the UNCAC articles under review.

The review team has completed the executive summary of the review of Australia’s compliance with UNCAC. It was tabled at the UNCAC Implementation Review Group meeting on 18 June 2012. The executive summary is available below.

As part of the review process, Australia completed a self-assessment report of its compliance with the chapters under review. The self-assessment report was submitted to the UNODC in November 2011, and its content is accurate as of that date.

The results from the UNCAC review, along with those from the current OECD Foreign Bribery Convention review, will be closely considered in the development of the National Anti-Corruption Plan and will be important in identifying areas for further improvement in Australia’s anti-corruption framework.

    Judging by this document - Australia is failing badly. RBA corruption and bribes, Australian Banks allowed to profit from fraud. ASIC,APRA,FOS, AFP fail in helping the Australia people on all levels. Court system only works if you have money. AND we are suppose to be taking a leadership role in this. Who is the government trying to kid? What a joke this policy is..!!
