According to CA chief executive James Sutherland, the review was sanctioned before the February 7 release of the scathing Australian Crime Commission report, titled 'Organised Crime and Drugs in Sport'.
Anderson will look into all aspects of integrity management, including anti-doping policies, disciplinary processes, domestic cricket anti-corruption and CA's involvement in the International Cricket Council's global anti-corruption program.
He will report back by mid-year so recommendations can be considered ahead of the 2013/14 cricket season.
"Public faith in the integrity of sports results they see on the playing field is absolutely critical and we want everything we do pressure tested by an independent specialist expert to be sure we are as good as we can be," Sutherland said in a statement.
Anderson was approached 'because he was independent of CA' and set up the AFL integrity unit, 'recognised as a gold standard in Australian sport'.
