Probity Services

Probity Services Header

In today’s world, it’s more important than ever that your tendering and procurement processes and major programmes and projects meet the highest standards of public sector probity. That means covering all the bases, from guaranteeing impartiality, transparency and confidentiality to ensuring accountability, mitigating conflicts of interest and delivering best value for money. We do this through probity audits, probity assurance and probity advice.

Get it right, and you’ll minimise the risks of legal challenges, Official Information Act requests and Audit Office inquiries. You’ll also demonstrate to potential suppliers (and auditors) your commitment to being fair, honest, respectful and ethical in everything you do. They’ll have confidence in your trustworthiness and the way you manage and spend public money – which in turn will enhance your agency’s reputation in the marketplace.
