Policy: Procurement probity

Purpose

To inform staff of the probity framework for purchasing goods and services with University funds.

Overview

The probity framework for purchasing goods and services with University funds.

Scope

This Policy applies across the University.

Policy Statement

Principles

  1. The University is committed to ensuring a high standard of probity in all phases of the procurement process.
  2. The purpose of probity is to ensure ethical behaviours such as honesty, integrity, diligence, fairness, trust, respect and consistency are adhered to. This protects the integrity of each procurement process being undertaken by the University, promotes public confidence and manages potential risks, perceived or otherwise, to the University.
  3. Probity should not be viewed as a barrier to the achievement of value for money. Instead probity should be applied to each aspect of the procurement process with common sense and flexibility.
  4. University procurement shall be conducted with reference to the requirements outlined in the Procurement Probity Procedure.
