Accountability and leadership

The CCC is subject to a range of accountability mechanisms.

External accountability

The Parliamentary Crime and Corruption Committee (PCCC) is an all-party parliamentary committee that oversees the CCC’s performance and activities and deals with complaints against it. The CCC reports to the PCCC every two months by means of both public and confidential reports and discussions.

The Parliamentary Crime and Corruption Commissioner also undertakes audits and inspections of CCC compliance on behalf of the PCCC.

Queensland’s Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, Minister for Training and Skills is responsible for the allocation of the CCC budget. The CCC reports to the Attorney-General on its efficiency, effectiveness, economy and timeliness.

CCC leadership

The CCC is headed by a five-member group referred to as “the Commission”, which functions as the board of the CCC. The Commission sets corporate policy and strategic direction and has primary oversight responsibility for budget, performance, risk management.

      The Public Interest Monitor monitors CCC compliance with key legislation, including examining the CCC’s applications for covert search warrants and surveillance warrants.
