Procurement and probity

An experienced probity practitioner can help you meet the challenge of achieving successful sourcing outcomes while complying with extensive complex regulatory guidelines.
Ensuring probity in procurement

Organisations operating within heavily regulated industries continually face tightening funding constraints and increased scrutiny by media and stakeholders. Consequently, these organisations must ensure their procurement and sourcing is exemplary with an effective probity process in place.

Procurement is becoming less tactical and more strategic with a focus on utilising each sourcing opportunity to optimise supply chains and deliver the best results. Procurement requires ongoing relationship management, agility to deploy different methods for different scenarios and careful mitigation of risk. Engaging with an experienced probity practitioner will help you meet the complex legislative requirements of procurement while achieving the most successful sourcing outcomes.
