Inspection of ONA activities
This financial year was marked by more involvement in reviewing ONA activities than in the previous year, as the IGIS undertook an inquiry into the analytic independence of ONA. Details about the inquiry are provided on page 11 of this report. Our routine inspections of ONA were limited to two inspections focused on ONA's compliance with its privacy guidelines. In these inspections only a small number of interpretative and administrative errors were identified however none led to intelligence information about an Australian person being disseminated without an appropriate underlying basis for doing so.
