Operating under a Service Level Agreement, NIFS is guided by the Australia New Zealand Forensic Executive Committee (ANZFEC). ANZFEC members help shape the NIFS three-year strategic plan and approves its annual business plan. The ANZPAA Board approve the final strategic plan, and program budget, ensuring the work of NIFS complements the broader policing landscape.

Our Committee

Our Collaborations

NIFS maintains strong strategic partnerships with policing and other law enforcement agencies, standards agencies, accreditation organisations, academia, the judiciary, and the international forensic community.
