The UAE Accountability Authority (UAEAA), the supreme authority for financial control, auditing, integrity, and transparency in the United Arab Emirates, has announced that it recently obtained certification in Corporate Ethical Procurement and Supply from the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS). 

This was awarded after all procurement and supply management staff at UAEAA completed training in ethical procurement and supply management and passed a test in fraud, corruption, bribery, and environmental concerns, it was shared. 

CIPS is the largest global professional body for training and skills development for procurement and supply chain management. 

Commenting on securing the certification, Fahad Awad Aljeaidi, Director of the Organisational Support Sector at UAEAA, said: “Receiving this CIPS certification is a proud moment for UAEAA. This recognition is not only a testament to our dedication to excellence in procurement and supply chain management, but also a validation of our team’s expertise. It underscores our commitment to high professional standards, enhancing vendor relationships, achieving cost savings, and operational efficiency. This milestone opens new doors for opportunities and partnerships within the industry. We are grateful to CIPS for this honour and are committed to continuing our mission to elevate our industry standing.”

“We are delighted to present UAEAA with this certification as this demonstrates their understanding of the growing importance of ethical procurement. It is essential for procurement teams to identify the types of ethical issues they may face and develop ethical standards and practices to combat these challenges. This shows UAEAA’s commitment to robust ethical practices and affirms their adherence to global procurement benchmarks,” added Sam Achampong, CIPS MENA, Managing Director.
