Recommendations for corruption prevention

Recommendation 1

That the management team of Facilities Management Services (FMS) at the University of New England (UNE) enforces a zero tolerance on gifts and benefits from suppliers to FMS.

Recommendation 2

That UNE ensures that all foreseeable expenditure be included in the project budget and the use of contingency funds triggers management approval.

That UNE examines models that exist for select- and single-invite tendering and adapts the most suitable model to its needs.

Recommendation 4

That UNE re-designs its procurement processes by taking into account opportunities for corruption, and formalises the processes in policy.
