Ethical Public Procurement, (IPDM) Infrastructure Procurement and Delivery Management

Recent policy, legislative and regulatory reform in African government institutions is focused on enhancing service delivery to all the people of Africa. Good practice procurement, contract management and fraud prevention have the capacity to increase revenue opportunities, decrease costs and enhance service delivery. Procurement professionals must conduct their business practices in the most ethical manner. Failing to abide to ethical practices can lead to immoral and illegal practices such as bribery, favoritism, illegal sourcing etc. The immediate reaction to the idea of unsatisfactory procurement ethics is that it will be damaging for public relations, if those ethics become public knowledge. Leaders have to make sure that actions are taken to follow proper ethics as this can only contribute to the success of any business
