4 December 2021
Rigorous and clear processes in place

Today the University of Sydney issued a statement regarding a tender process for health equipment.

As was made clear to The Australian newspaper, we have not breached any regulations.

We have complied with all obligations under Australian law, including our DFAT obligations.

No contract has been awarded yet. We have rigorous and clear processes to ensure all relevant checks and balances are completed; this includes an external independent assessment.

We are jointly working with the Northern Sydney Local Health District on this tender for an important piece of medical technology equipment that will provide benefits for patients and researchers.
