I have used a version of this system with success in pombe and with
suitable modification it ought to work in cereivsiae.  It was tested
originally in pombe by Christianne Gatz;  I constructed  more
general-purpose vectors and a strain that constitutively expresses 
tet repressor. In Gatz' system, the addition of tetracycline 
depresses the CaMV  promoter,  which has modest constitutive actiivty 
on its own.   It ought to be simple to swap in a cerevisiae specific
prmoter if the CaMV promoter doesnt work, and to replace pombe ars1 with
cerevisiae 2micron.
