Probity Probity


Ensuring probity of action is everyone’s responsibility when conducting procurement activities. We apply the following basic principles of good practice when buying goods and services:

  • Accountability.
  • Openness.
  • Value for Money.
  • Lawfulness.
  • Fairness.
  • Integrity.

By applying these principles sensibly we can demonstrate that we are spending public money carefully and properly managing the process for spending it.

Probity concerns

We consider probity of process of utmost importance. All tenders will state a specific contact should suppliers have a probity concern with regard to a particular procurement activity.

We will also appoint an independent Probity Auditor for all procurements valued above $5m, or that are considered high risk.

An independent hotline has been established for both staff and the public to report issues of concern. Calls are reviewed by Auckland Transport and all complaints and allegations passed on to the Independent Reviewer. If you have a probity concern you can call the hotline on 0800 287-376 or e-mail email them.
