Section 24H of the Public Sector Management Act 1994 (PSM Act) enables the Public Sector Commissioner to arrange for the holding of a special inquiry into a matter related to the Public Sector. Under the PSM Act, a special inquiry has powers similar to those of a Royal Commission. The Commissioner may exercise these powers either on their own initiative or may be directed by the Minister.
Since the establishment of PSC in 2008, the following special inquiries have been completed:
- Inquiry into Government Programs and Projects
- Peel Health Campus: Contract Management and Clinical Outcomes
- St Andrew’s Hostel Katanning: How the system and society failed our children
- Appreciating the Risk: Report of the Special Inquiry into the November 2011 Margaret River Bushfire
- A Shared Responsibility: The Report of the Perth Hills Bushfire February 2011 Review.
- Waroona Bushfire Special Inquiry
Reports of other inquiries and commissions prior to 2008 are available at State Law Publisher website.
