Argus

In Greek mythology, Argus was a giant with a hundred eyes. He saw in every direction at once, and even when he slept, his eyes would remain open. It is this spirit of constant vigilance which Argus brings to its work

Who we are

At Argus Probity, we provide specialist probity auditing and governance advice to Government Departments, Government Owned Corporations, Private/Public Project Alliances, Local Government Councils and Project Developers and Building Contractors. Our role is to provide independent probity services to validate procurement or evaluation processes on projects where probity governance is called for: eg high-value, sensitive or controversial, or especially complex and difficult projects.

What is Probity?

The dictionary definition of probity refers to uprightness, honesty, incorruptibility, proper and ethical conduct and propriety in dealings. Within Government the word “probity” is often used in a general sense to mean “transparent and fair process”.

Probity auditing and advice is an essential element of modern procurement and tendering practices where public money is involved. It ensures transparency, integrity and public accountability, and dispels opportunities for people involved to hide conflicts of interest.

What we do

Argus Probity’s probity advisory role involves establishing the governance protocols, drafting, observing and reviewing the probity framework of a project, and providing guidance on issues as they arise. This is a proactive role designed to protect the project’s integrity.

Our auditing role expands on this, providing independent and objective scrutiny of the process, and also reporting on stages of a project, specific issues on instruction or the concluded project.
