The GIRO team monitors regulatory changes and liaise with organisations such as the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR), the Victorian Local Governance Association (VLGA), and primary care partnerships, as well as councillors and academics, to ensure information is accurate and up-to-date.
GIRO also monitors decisions related to gambling made by the commission and the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT).
