This page lists open assessments, investigations and inquiries, and those finalised: since 1 July 2022; 1 July 2021 - 30 June 2022; and 1 July 2020 - 30 June 2021.

You can view full summaries of assessments and investigations finalised in previous years; these are also contained in our annual reports. You can also read past investigation reports that have been tabled in Parliament.
