Accountability

The Victorian Inspectorate is overseen by the following Parliamentary Committees:

 

Accountability and Oversight Committee (AOC)

The AOC reviews the performance of the duties and functions of the VI, and examines any reports made by the Victorian Inspectorate, in relation to Victorian Ombudsman officers or the Judicial Commission.

 

Public Accounts and Estimates Committee (PAEC)

The PAEC reviews the performance of the duties and functions of the Victorian Inspectorate, and examines any reports made by the Victorian Inspectorate, in relation to Victorian Auditor-General's Office, officers.

 

Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) Committee

The IBAC Committee monitors and reviews the performance of the other duties and functions of the Victorian Inspectorate.

 

To ensure the independence of the Victorian Inspectorate and the Inspector, it is legally impermissible for any of the above committees to investigate or review any decision, finding or recommendation made by the Victorian Inspectorate in the discharge or exercise of its functions and powers.
