Apart from prosecutions, the ICAC investigations may result in cautions and referrals to government departments. Cautions are administered to adults who made full admissions of the offences in minor cases that the Secretary for Justice considers not to be in the public interest to prosecute. The ICAC also refers cases of misconduct or malpractice of government officers to government departments for consideration of disciplinary or administrative action.
