Department of Housing - allegations of corrupt conduct in allocation of public housing (Operation Greenway)

The ICAC investigated whether a Department of Housing Senior Client Services Officer corruptly solicited and received cash payments from prospective tenants to fast-track their applications as part of a scheme in which he collaborated with two tenants.

In its investigation report, made public on 31 January 2008, the ICAC made findings of corrupt conduct against the three individuals, and six other persons who were involved in paying money to the officer in return for receiving public housing allocations.

The ICAC stated its opinion that consideration should be given to obtaining the advice of the Director of Public prosecutions with respect to the prosecution of the three individuals, and two others, for various offences. The ICAC made a total of 18 corruption prevention recommendations to the Department of Housing.
