This audit would assess whether Sport Integrity Australia has delivered a coordinated national response to sports integrity issues.

Sport Integrity Australia was created in July 2020 in response to the Review of Australia’s Sports Integrity Arrangements (Wood Review), amalgamating the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority, National Integrity of Sport Unit (from the Department of Health), and integrity functions from Sport Australia. Its key activities include: acquitting the responsibilities of a National Anti-Doping Organisation, including administering athlete testing and conducting investigations of potential doping violations; promoting the adoption of the National Integrity Framework; assessing integrity complaints from complainants associated with National Sporting Organisations that have adopted the National Integrity Framework; and working to ratify the Convention on the Manipulation of Sports Competitions (Macolin Convention), including establishing a national platform for information-sharing of intelligence on sporting integrity.

The audit would assess anti-doping operations, the administration of the National Integrity Framework, and intelligence sharing on sports integrity matters.
