Review of Legislative Schemes

On 31 October 2014, The Hon.

Today the Commissioner has released a discussion paper that outlines the relevant issues and makes a call for submissions. 

If you would like to make a submission regarding the reviews or the evaluation, the Commissioner invites you to download the discussion paper from the ICAC website www.icac.sa.gov.au
