Recent years have seen a significant rise in the level of sophistication being applied in terms of probity arrangements for government procurement activities. As governments enter into more complex contracts with the private sector, the procurement techniques and methods are varying. This has resulted in increased levels of scrutiny to ensure the processes are fair. Understanding the fundamentals of probity is key to running defensible processes.
