Ensuring Probity in your procurement
If your organisation enters into large contracts for goods or services, you should be confident that this procurement is conducted with the level of probity which your organisation and other stakeholders expects. Are you?
Probity is the evidence of ethical behaviour in a particular process.
Probity assurance provides a defensible process which can withstand internal and external scrutiny.
Probity advice can ensure your procurement process is efficient and beyond reproach. When compared to the cost of restarting a procurement process, probity advice can be surprisingly cost effective.
"Any decision involving significant levels of procurement risk warrants a comparable level of probity assurance. "
Stratica is a specialist consulting practice offering probity advice on public and private sector procurement. Stratica consultants are accredited Probity Practitioners.
Stratica's probity assurance service is applicable for both public and private sector organisations. We can tailor services to meet organisational objectives or time constraints.
