Co Serve has an outstanding track record consulting and advising both public and private sector organisations concerning probity, governance and procurement matters.

Probity & Procurement

We have built a strong reputation for the provision of independent probity and procurement advice, ensuring that procurement processes reflect agency and government guidelines and adhere to best practice principles and government regulations where they apply.Diogenes

Co Serve has extensive experience delivering procurement and probity advisory services for all types of procurement processes and for a range of industry sectors. This includes Expressions of Interest (EOI), Request for Proposals (RFP), Request for Tenders (RFT) and other approach to market or market engagement processes. We have experience also with market engagements processes for Public Private Partnerships and Alliances.

Governance Advice

In addition to the provision of procurement and probity advice we can also undertake probity audits or probity reviews of proposed, current or past activities and assist with ensuring that governance structures and practices adhere to legislative and policy requirements.

Our services include the provision of advice and assistance with delegation and decision making structures, the identification and management of Conflicts of Interest, as well as the development of Codes of Conduct.

When monitoring, assessing, advising or reporting on a particular governance issues we observe the principles, guidelines and decision-making framework set out in relevant Standards Australia publications including AS 8000-2003 Corporate governance - Good governance principles, HB 254-2005 Governance, risk management and control assurance, HB 325-2008 Assuring probity in decision-making, and HB 401-2004 Application of Corporate Governance.

Virtual Meeting Rooms

To efficiently manage travel time and costs we make extensive use of Citrix GoToMeeting virtual meeting room technology.

Decision Support

Most evaluation processes involve a complex trade-off between financial issues, human factors, technical specifications, risks of many kinds, strategic issues and stakeholder viewpoints often a spreadsheet is not an adequate decision support tool.

The decision matrix and multi-attribute utility theory behind Apian DecisionPad has been successfully used by business and government organisations for many years.

We've employed DecisionPad for documenting evaluation processes and providing comprehensive decision support since the original MS-DOS version was released in 1987.
