Mine Subsidence Board – allegations concerning former district manager (Operation Tunic)
The ICAC investigated allegations that former Mine Subsidence Board (MSB) Picton office district manager Darren Bullock received, or may have received, corrupt payments or other benefits as an inducement or reward for showing favourable treatment to building contractor Kevin Inskip of Plantac Pty Ltd and to William Kendall of Willbuilt Homes Pty Ltd. The Commission also investigated allegations that Mr Bullock revealed confidential MSB tender information to Plantac Pty Ltd, and breached MSB financial delegations, policies and/or procedures relating to the awarding of contracts and the making of payments to that company.
In its report on the investigation, made public on 23 March 2016, the Commission makes findings of serious corrupt conduct against Mr Bullock, Mr Inskip, David Salmon of A&DJ Services Pty Ltd and Barbara Inskip. The Commission does not make any findings of serious corrupt conduct in respect of Mr Kendall.
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 Bullock for various offences.
The ICAC also makes seven corruption prevention recommendations to the MSB to help prevent the recurrence of the conduct exposed in this investigation in the future.
