The Australian Government has established the National Integrity of Sport Unit (NISU)to provide national oversight, monitoring and coordination of efforts to protect the integrity of sport in Australia from the threats of doping, match-fixing and other forms of corruption.

The specific functions of the National Integrity of Sport Unit are to:

  • provide national coordination and policy direction for sports integrity issues and seek to strengthen relationships between state and territory governments, regulators, sporting organisations, law enforcement, and other agencies as appropriate;
  • work with like-minded nations, the international sports movement, betting operators and regulators on match-fixing and fraudulent betting issues and advocate for a global response to match-fixing;
  • coordinate legislation, regulation, policies and administrative practices between the Commonwealth and the States to allow governments to adopt appropriate measures to ensure sport is drug-free;
  • provide advice and work with individual sports to ensure a robust integrity framework is adopted across the sporting codes and there are no gaps for criminal groups to infiltrate;
    use the Sports Integrity Threat Assessment Methodology (SITAM) to assist sporting organisations to identify potential integrity vulnerabilities and develop their integrity capabilities;
  • administer the Sport Integrity Programme;
  • undertake research and provide information to support effective approaches to protect the integrity of sport; and
  • support sports by providing online education resources on match-fixing and illicit drugs.
