IBAC To resume in February

The Department of Education and Training’s $180 million Ultranet project will be the focus of public hearings to be held by the state’s anti-corruption commission in February 2016. 

Operation Dunham hearings will examine allegations of serious corruption at the department, focusing on:

  • how contracts around the online learning portal were tendered for and awarded
  • the personal and business connections between department employees and businesses involved in the Ultranet project
  • whether current or former department employees released confidential information, or used their position to influence procurement processes
  • whether department employees received payments, gifts, travel, employment opportunities or other benefits because they were involved in the Ultranet tender or procurement processes
  • department procurement and conflict of interest processes, and organisational culture.

    They will be conducted by the IBAC Commissioner, Stephen O’Bryan QC.  Counsel assisting will be Ian Hill QC with Carmen Currie of the Victorian Bar. 

    Operation Dunham is separate to Operation Ord ( Refer previous posts about IBAQ )
