Probity Fundamentals


Get in touch information is loading


Recommended CPD point allocation: 7 points (excluding WA).

Recent high profile investigations have put the spotlight on conflicts of interest, probity and corruption in government. Governments around the country have responded with new regimes, which they say will reduce the risk of corruption, and increase transparency, integrity and accountability, particularly in government tender processes.

Understanding the fundamentals of probity is the key to running defensible processes and maintaining high levels of accountability in government.
