We maintain cooperative relationships with a range of agencies and entities both domestic and international.

Five-Eyes partners

Cooperative relationships with international oversight and review organisations from the Five-Eyes nations strengthen our approach to intelligence oversight. The sharing of ideas and approaches assists us to adapt and respond to emerging issues and continually improve how we operate.

We engage with these partners both bilaterally and through the Five-Eyes Intelligence Oversight and Review Council (FIORC).

Integrity and oversight agencies

The Office’s oversight role complements that of other Commonwealth integrity and oversight agencies, and any potential issues of operational or jurisdictional overlap are managed cooperatively. The oversight and integrity agencies we cooperate with include:

Intelligence agencies

The Office’s productive relationships with the intelligence agencies facilitate the conduct of oversight work, and are maintained through regular meetings between leadership.

Attorney-General’s Department

The Office is an agency within the Attorney-General’s portfolio and works collaboratively with the Attorney-General’s Department on a range of policy and legal issues.
