Course Overview


NSW Public Sector procurement and contracting staff as well as those in finance and administrative roles have key responsibilities to ensure that probity is maintained.
Defined as ‘complete and confirmed integrity, uprightness and honesty’, probity is evidence of ethical behaviour in a process, and contributes to sound procurement processes that give equal opportunities to all participants.
