Welcome to the June edition of IBAC Insights. Since our last edition we have been busy working to complete a range of investigations and I have presented to a public hearing as part of the Parliamentary Integrity and Oversight Committee's (IOC) inquiry into the education and prevention functions of Victoria's integrity agencies.
Unfortunately, due to the recent COVID outbreak we were required to postpone the public hearings on Operation Esperance. Completing investigations in a timely manner is important in order to minimise the risk that institutional failings identified in an investigation are repeated. The second half of this year, COVID permitting, will see us catch-up on this work.
