Reports of the Special Manager

The Special Manager has regularly reported to the Victorian Government and the community.


The Office of the Special Manager published four 6-monthly activity reports, which are available on this website. The activity reports provide community and other stakeholders with an update on the Special Manager’s work and key activities during the previous 6 months.

The Special Manager was also required under legislation to provide 6-monthly interim reports, and a final report on a confidential basis to the Victorian Gambling and Casino Control Commission (VGCCC)(opens in a new window) and the Minister for Casino, Gaming and Liquor Regulation.

The interim and final reports were required to be provided confidentially because they included legally privileged and commercially sensitive information. These reports also detailed the Special Manager’s assessment and independent evaluation of Crown’s reforms. Publication of this information could have risked compromising the Special Manager's independent work, and ultimately impacted the VGCCC’s decision-making on the casino licence.

Special Manager's final report

The VGCCC publicly released a redacted version of the Special Manager’s final report and Appendices A-G on 26 April 2024:
