The Dunedin City Council (DCC) has established a professional procurement function to ensure procurement is both leading edge and conducted in a professional and consistent manner across the DCC.
Probity is a vital element to the DCC’s procurement process and we recognise that this is, at times, best achieved with external assurance. We are therefore seeking to partner with external parties to provide that independent assurance when required.
The Procurement Team is able perform the probity assurance role for much of the DCC’s procurement activity. We also recognise that it is not always appropriate to have the probity assurance function provided by DCC staff (particularly for high-risk, high-value and/or specific high-profile projects) and independent probity assurance may therefore necessary in such cases.
This procurement is intended to establish a small panel of pre-qualified probity auditors so that the DCC can draw on their services, as and when required.
