Under the Commonwealth Fraud Control Guidelines, the AFP has primary law enforcement responsibility for investigating serious or complex fraud against the Commonwealth.

White-collar criminal activity frequently involves breaches of State and Commonwealth criminal and regulatory legislation.

AFP investigations of crime against the Commonwealth can contribute to the reduction or cessation of activities beyond those targeted by a particular investigation resulting in increased compliance with Commonwealth legislation and enhanced revenue and expenditure outcomes for the Commonwealth.
