Under the provisions of the Defence Act 1903, Section 110R, the Inspector–General of the Australian Defence Force must prepare and give to the Minster, for presentation to the Parliament, an annual report on the operations of the office during each financial year.
The Inspector-General of the Australian Defence Force Annual Report was tabled in Parliament on 25 February 2021.
The Annual Report included an update on the Inspector-General of the Australian Defence Force Afghanistan Inquiry. It reflected that, by the end of June 2020, the number of incidents or issues being examined had increased by five to 60 when compared with the previous reporting period. The total number of incidents or issues increased again before submission of the IGADF Afghanistan Inquiry report to the Chief of the Defence Force, with some incidents or issues considered in detail and others either discontinued or recommended for further inquiry.
