HKA gains CIPS Corporate Ethical Procurement and Supply Certification

HKA, a leading global consultancy in risk mitigation, dispute resolution, expert witness and litigation support services, announced that HKA's Commercial Advisory team achieved The Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) Corporate Ethical Procurement and Supply certification in December 2022.

CIPS is a global membership organisation driving positive change across the procurement profession. As the awarding body for the profession, they lead in education and training to help professionals advance their ambition. They provide insights, information and tools, building capability within organisations and enabling members to develop their own best practice.

By completing the course, members of the Commercial Advisory team are able to identify the significance of ethics for procurement and supply and define each stage of the sourcing process, explaining how operational performance can be measured and improved in support of added value operations.

HKA sought to prioritise this training across our team given the heightened risks across global supply chains and in recognition of our role in driving ethical practices across the projects we work on.

Amri Denton, Head of Commercial Advisory, Asia Pacific, said, "As one of the few consulting companies in Australia to obtain this certification, it is a terrific achievement and recognition of the commitment HKA places on ethical procurement, sourcing and supplier management. I'm very proud of the team."
