University of Sydney – allegations concerning ICT contractor recruitment (Operation Elgar)

The ICAC investigated allegations concerning Jason Meeth, a public official employed as the Head of Projects, ICT, at the University of Sydney. It is alleged that, between February 2012 and July 2013, Mr Meeth corruptly exercised his official functions for the benefit of IT consulting service Canberra Solutions Pty Ltd. Mr Meeth also allegedly acted partially and dishonestly by engaging certain ICT contractors through Canberra Solutions, although this company was not a NSW Government-accredited C100 company as required under the university’s directions for the recruitment of ICT contractors.

In its report on the investigation, made public on 11 May 2016, the Commission makes a finding of serious corrupt conduct against Mr Meeth.

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 Canberra Solutions’ Balu Moothedath for various offences.
