Probity Adviser Directory

Probity Adviser Directory

The Department of Treasury and Finance has established a Probity Adviser Directory to assist agencies in selecting a probity advisor where it has been determined that one is required. The Directory can be found here. It is not mandatory for agencies to use the Directory to engage an external probity adviser. However, it is designed to simplify the process.

The intended users of the Directory are those required to comply with the Treasurer's Instructions issued under the Financial Management Act 2016. Any other entities who choose to use the Directory should exercise due diligence and undertake their own conflict of interest checks.

If an agency chooses to use the Directory, they should refer to Treasurer's Instruction PP‑2 Procurement Processes - Market Approaches and follow the requirements outlined in clause 2.14.2. These simplified procurement arrangements are restricted to processes that involve members of the Directory.

A Curriculum Vitae for each Directory member is provided to give agencies an overview of an adviser's professional background and relevant probity experience. Prior to engaging a probity adviser, agencies should check any conflicts of interest.

All advisers listed on the Directory have agreed to maintain, for the purposes of any contracts entered into for the supply of probity services, appropriate levels of public liability and professional indemnity insurance in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Contract for Services formalised directly between the instructing agency and the Probity Adviser. Agencies must seek proof of appropriate levels of insurance when contracting an adviser.

For more information on ensuring probity during the procurement process, please read the Probity Guidelines for Procurement.
