University of Sydney - allegations of corrupt conduct involving University Sydney employee (Operation Kanda)

The ICAC conducted an investigation into the conduct of Deborah Yandell, Site Manager, Campus Infrastructure Services, University of Sydney concerning the alleged failure to disclose conflicts of interest arising out of allocation of cleaning contracts to Razorback Services Pty Ltd, a company jointly owned by her and her husband, Dino Radovac.

The investigation report, made public on 8 September 2010, details ICAC findings made against Ms Yandell. 

The Commission is not of the opinion that the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) should be sought with respect to prosecuting Ms Yandell or Mr Radovac for any criminal offences. 

The Commission made five corruption prevention recommendations to the University of Sydney to help minimise or prevent similar conduct occurring in the future in procurement and contracting.
