CIPS awards Abu Dhabi Accountability Authority with Corporate Ethical Procurement and Supply certification

by Madaline Dunn

The Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) recently awarded the Abu Dhabi Accountability Authority (ADAA) certification in Corporate Ethical Procurement and Supply.

The certification was received after all procurement and supply management staff at ADAA completed training in ethical procurement and supply management and passed a test in fraud, corruption, bribery, and environmental concerns.

Speaking about this, CIPS MENA, Managing Director, Sam Achampong, said: “We are delighted that ADAA have been certified in ethical procurement and this demonstrates their understanding of the growing importance of ethical procurement. Companies should be developing an ethical procurement strategy that starts with a thorough review and risk assessment of current supply chains from which potential problems can be identified and resolved. It is essential for procurement teams to identify the types of ethical issues they may face so they can develop ethical standards and practices.”

The CIPS Ethical Procurement and Supply eLearning and test has recently been updated and renewed to provide quality learning and guidance for organisations concerned about preventing unethical practices in their supply chains.

The CIPS shared that it was developed for all levels of procurement professionals.

Commenting on the achievement, Mahmoud Al Alawi, Executive Director, ADAA, said: “By achieving the highly regarded CIPS certificate in procurement, the Abu Dhabi Accountability Authority has marked a notable milestone, exemplifying excellence in our field. This recognition goes beyond individual achievement; it embodies our unwavering commitment to maintaining the highest standards of integrity in our financial dealings. It opens doors to potential future collaborations with vendors and reinforces our status as an authoritative audit body dedicated to setting benchmarks in credibility through professional training of our staff. This ensures the dependability and trustworthiness of our financial operations. Furthermore, our achievement serves as a beacon, inspiring other organisations to follow in our footsteps, striving for a similar commitment to integrity and reliability in their practices.”

Organisations that achieve the ethics mark are included in the CIPS Corporate Ethics Register, which includes organisations from various sectors and organisations around the globe.
