Crime and corruption

In this section...

We lead Australia's engagement in a range of regional and international forums and initiatives to combat corruption.

Federal offenders
Federal offenders are persons who are convicted of a Commonwealth offence. Examples of Commonwealth offences include importation of drugs, terrorism, child sex offences committed using a carriage service, and social security fraud.

Foreign bribery
The Australian Government takes a strong stance against foreign bribery and other forms of corruption.

Fraud control
We are responsible for coordinating fraud control policy. This includes administering the Commonwealth Fraud Control Framework and promoting the use of risk management techniques and best practice in fraud control.
