Probity is often considered as the "integrity & uprightness" of a process.
Public and occasionally private sector organisations, conduct tender processes and as part of these processes, often require the appointment of a probity advisor or probity auditor.
RSM provides independent and objective advice on tender and transaction processes to assist organisations ensure the process is fair, equitable and most importantly, defensible.
While the majority of our projects are delivered to public sector entities, we occasionally work with private sector entities to help them assert the integrity of their specific process.
Often, we are asked to conduct an audit of the procurement process to provide an opinion as to the probity of the tender process which goes toward maintaining stakeholder confidence in the tender processes.
The RSM probity team has extensive experience in delivering both probity advice and assurance engagements across infrastructure, services, technology, managing contractor and divestment projects, state purchasing contracts, strategic procurements, public private partnerships, grants and licensing and other projects.
