Procurement Assurance Services

Procurement Practice

Public Sector procurement and contract management processes are increasingly under scrutiny, with calls for greater efficiency, more accountability, and above all, demonstrated value for money in the way taxpayer/ratepayer dollars are spent.

Are you confident that your procurement approach is meeting these demands? That your tender and contracting processes are based on robust and well researched information, and consider and manage all the potential risks? That you provide a fair, open and competitive procurement environment for existing and potential suppliers?
