At present, the ICAC has about 1,400 staff, most of them serving on contracts. More than half have served for more than 10 years.
The ICAC from its inception has adopted a unique strategy to fighting corruption on three fronts:
The three-pronged approach, embodied in the Commission's three departments, has been vital in developing a new public consciousness. It was recognised that prevention was as important as the deterrent of prosecution, and the battle against corruption could only be won by changing people's attitude towards graft. The strategy has proved effective and remains the ICAC's guiding strategy today.
Serviced by a central Administration Branch, the three departments are interdependent. To achieve maximum efficiency, each department capitalises and builds on the performance of the others.
