University IT management – allegations concerning former IT manager (Operation Misto)

The ICAC investigated allegations that Brett Roberts corruptly obtained benefits by issuing false invoices to the University of Newcastle, the University of Sydney and Macquarie University, when he held information technology (IT) management positions at each of the universities between 2005 and 2013.

In its report on the investigation, made public on 25 June 2015, the Commission makes corrupt conduct findings against Mr Roberts, Christopher Killalea and Emiel Temmerman. The Commission is of the opinion that consideration should be given to obtaining the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions with respect to the prosecution of Mr Roberts and Mr Killalea for various offences.

The ICAC also makes two corruption prevention recommendations to the University of Sydney and one recommendation to all of the universities to help prevent the recurrence of the conduct exposed in this investigation in the future.
