The vision of the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) is to provide timely professional forensic investigations into maladministration and malpractice in order to protect the public interest and reverse the scourge of corruption in society.

The SIU's mission is to use its unique forensic investigation and legal skills in the valiant war on corruption by conducting forensic investigations into state institutions and seeking positive results through litigation and gathering evidence for disciplinary hearings and criminal prosecutions, and also by lending the necessary assistance to other corruption-busting agencies.

The SIU’s ultimate strategic outcome is to uncover corruption, malpractice and maladministration and to win the war against these practices. In order to strive towards these outcomes, the SIU has two strategic objectives: quality forensic investigations, conducting civil litigation and assisting with other processes; and developing and maintaining strategic partner relations.
