The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) is investigating the allocation of contracts for capital and maintenance works by the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) between January 2006 and April 2012. The ICAC will be examining allegations that:

1. Nabil Faysal, then an employee of UTS, solicited and accepted money or other benefits from UTS contractors in return for allocating UTS work to those contractors, or using his position to influence the allocation of UTS work to them

2. Mr Faysal knowingly breached UTS policies and procedures for his own benefit and the benefit of UTS contractors, including by:

(a) improperly disclosing confidential UTS information

(b) failing to disclose any conflicts of interests to UTS arising from his relationship with UTS contractors

(c) engaging in unauthorised secondary employment.

As part of its investigation, the ICAC will hold a public inquiry starting at 10:00 am on Monday 24 September 2012, at L21, 133 Castlereagh St., Sydney.

Persons claiming to be substantially and directly interested in this matter may seek leave to be represented at the inquiry, and are invited to contact David Wong on (02) 8281-5999 to advise of their interest.
