The Academic Integrity Officer oversees the preliminary investigation. Administrative staff can perform a number of checks as part of the preliminary investigation, depending on the individual case these can include:

·        Contacting Student Complaints and Grievance Resolution at studentconduct@uq.edu.au to check if the student has a misconduct record (essential for all cases) and if they have completed the compulsory Academic Integrity Online Tutorial.
·        Printing a copy of the course profile in relation to specific information that has been delivered to students.
·        Printing a copy of the student’s study report.
·        Printing copies of any related correspondence with the student.
·        Obtaining reports from ITS on student activity.
Once all relevant information has been collected and collated by administrative staff, the Academic Integrity Officer can decide if a prima facie case exists and what further action should be taken.
