In 2017, the results of a major independent intelligence review have sparked transformational changes in Australia’s National Intelligence Community (NIC). Much of this change is still underway, but less thought has been given to how reform changes to both national security and home affairs intelligence capabilities might affect existing oversight and accountability mechanisms. This article will assess how traditional oversight and accountability mechanisms of the NIC may be affected by these transformational changes and whether current mechanisms are likely to remain fit for purpose.
