In June 2019, The National Integrity of Sport Unit (NISU) within the Department of Health appointed Dr Kath Hall and Dr Adam Masters from the Australian National University, and Dr Catherine Ordway from the University of Canberra, to research and report on best practice Australian and international policies and programs aimed at minimising and responding to integrity and corruption issues in sport. This research was commissioned in the context of the Report of the Review of Australia’s Sports Integrity Arrangements (Wood Review) and Safeguarding the Integrity of Sport -The Government Response to the Wood Review. This Review outlined a roadmap of reform to future-proof the Australian Government’s response to threats to the integrity of sport, including inter alia the establishment of a new federal regulatory authority, Sport Integrity Australia, by 1 July 2020. The final research report titled ‘Sport Integrity and Corruption - Best Practice Australian and International Policy & Program Delivery Approaches’ (the Report) was delivered to NISU in February 2020, accepted by the Sport Integrity Steering Committee in March 2020, and has had a number of immediate and planned future impacts for the Government and Sport Integrity Australia.
