Parliamentary Questions

Question Without Notice No. 926 asked in the Legislative Council on 10 October 2018 by Hon Tjorn Sibma

Minister responding: Hon B.S. Wyatt
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 10 October 2018

CORRUPTION AND CRIME COMMISSION — NORTH METROPOLITAN HEALTH SERVICE — MISCONDUCT — DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE

926. Hon TJORN SIBMA to the minister representing the Minister for Finance:

I refer to the matters raised by the Corruption and Crime Commission's ''Report into bribery and corruption in maintenance and service contracts within North Metropolitan Health Service'', and actions undertaken by the Department of Finance both prior to and following the publication of that report on 16 August 2018.

(1) Noting the period of time canvassed in the CCC report, what distinction, if any, does the Department of Finance make between the individuals and companies named in the report?

(2) Is the department aware of changes to the ownership of any of the companies named in the report?

(3) If yes to (2), which company or companies changed owners and when did this occur?

(4) Will this information have any bearing on the temporary suspension of a company or companies from being awarded state government contracts or expulsion from common-use agreement panels; and, if not, why not?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. The following information has been provided to me by the Minister for Finance.

(1)–(4) The Department of Finance is working through the matters raised in the Corruption and Crime Commission's report in close consultation with the State Solicitor's Office. It would be premature to make any further statements at this point.
