Roads and Maritime Services – allegations concerning employees’ awarding of contracts (Operation Ember)

Year: 2019 Status: Current

The public inquiry in this matter is adjourned until Monday 14 October 2019.

The ICAC is investigating whether, between July 2015 and February 2019, RMS employees Samer Soliman and Jainesh Singh partially and dishonestly exercised their official functions in relation to the awarding of contracts to Novation Engineering Pty Ltd and AZH Consulting Pty Ltd.

The contract work has included scoping studies, field trials and the supply of equipment and parts. Two contracts awarded to Novation Engineering Pty Ltd in 2018 for the replacement of RMS’ portable weigh scale assets totalled over $9 million in value. It is alleged that Mr Soliman received a financial benefit for his role in helping to secure the work awarded to both companies.
