Independent Commission Against Corruption - Operation Tunic (Claims Management & Procurement)

For the NSW Mine Subsidence Board (now Subsidence Advisory NSW, an agency of the NSW Department of Finance, Services & Innovation) in inquiry into alleged corrupt conduct in mine subsidence remediation procurement undertaken pursuant to the Mine Subsidence Compensation Act 1961, and whether end-to-end claims management processes lacked satisfactory controls to prevent corruption. 

The inquiry commenced in October 2014 and the final report of ICAC Commissioner the Hon. Megan Latham, former Supreme Court of New South Wales judge, was delivered on 23 March 2016. 

The Investigation report found that an MSB District Manager along with two contractors engaged by the MSB, had engaged in serious corrupt conduct. ICAC made seven corruption prevention recommendations to reduce the risk of recurrent corrupt conduct in the MSB. The MSB fully accepted the corruption prevention recommendations, and developed an action plan to implement the recommendations.
