Probity Audits

Probity Audits

We understand the necessity for councils to conduct fair, impartial and transparent tendering processes that comply with relevant legislation and tendering guidelines as well as Council’s own request for tender documentation.

You can obtain specialised and independent probity advice and audits on your own tendering processes through either or both of the following options:

  • Probity advice will generally be provided before and during the course of tendering and tender evaluation. Our specialist officers will consult with you to monitor the processes and practices in place and check for potential bias or conflicts of interest. The Probity Advice service can be tailored to suit your individual needs.
  • Probity audits, in which we will objectively review and report on potential probity issues associated with your tender process, are generally undertaken after the completion of a tender. The Probity Auditor will review your procedures, tendering documentation and evidence of tendering practices before providing a detailed and independent report on the audit outcomes and areas of potential non-compliance.
