Monday 27 Feb 2023 Corruption risks associated with major transport infrastructure projects

Victorian major infrastructure projects make up a complex sector that receives billions of taxpayer dollars each year. The 2022-23 Victorian State Budget committed $3.5 billion to public transport services and infrastructure. These major projects are under pressure to complete constructions and provide essential buildings and services for Victorians.

The Victorian community expects major infrastructure projects to be managed with integrity to ensure public funds are handled appropriately, and to minimise the risks of corruption.

Operation Clara was an investigation by the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) into the alleged corrupt conduct of Mr Theo Theophanous in his role on the board of the Victorian Planning Authority (VPA).

In January 2020, IBAC commenced Operation Clara to determine if a former Victorian Government Minister misused his public position on the board of the VPA to favour the Australian Education City (AEC) consortium in their East Werribee project proposal, or attempted to improperly influence public officers involved in the East Werribee project.
