Vic Dept of Education to face IBAC over Ultranet corruption allegations

Hearings will take place on 15 February 2016

The Victorian Department of Education and Training will face public hearings next year by the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) over allegations of unfair influence in the procurement process of Ultranet.

The hearings will take place on 15 February 2016, starting at 10am (local time) at the County Court in Melbourne. The public are welcome to attend.

IBAC has been investigating the allegations of unfairly awarding contracts, exercising personal relationships and positions of power, receiving gifts or payments in return of unfairly influencing the procurement process, misuse of confidential information, conflict of interest and more.

Ultranet is an online learning management portal developed for government state students, teachers and parents.

In 2012, the Victorian Auditor-General found the project had not delivered on time and budget, it was poorly implemented, and was lacking a substantive business case. The project cost $180 million.
