Procurement integrity is more than personal integrity. It is a process that is sound, complete, built with a sincere interest in quality work, statutory and regulatory compliance, and expert judgment. It’s a commitment to meeting the requirement using proven processes and best practices that can withstand scrutiny – with no wax or cracks.  To this end, Sine Cera’s members pledge and recertify annually to the following ethical code:

  • I will demand excellence from myself, my colleagues, and from our work products. If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing my best the first time, on time.
  • I will conduct myself in a professional manner that builds and maintains confidence in my expertise, Sine Cera, and the integrity of the procurement process.
  • I will avoid every entanglement that may create or appear to create a personal or organizational conflict of interest, or otherwise impair or impede my ability to provide impartial judgment.
  • I will comply with all laws and regulations that govern the acquisition process to the best of my knowledge and ability.
  • I will never disclose procurement sensitive information or attempt to profit from the sensitive information I access in the performance of my duties.
  • I will remain informed and current on changes in acquisition policy, statute, and regulation that inform the performance of my duties and my profession.
  • I will give sound acquisition advice and support to my clients. I will not cut corners or mince words. My input will be professional, but always direct.

Sine Cera maintains a FAR-compliant organizational and personal conflict of interest prevention program to avoid even an appearance of personal or organizational conflict. Sine Cera screens employees for actual and potential personal conflicts, obtaining and maintaining for each employee a disclosure of interests that might be affected by the work the employee performs. We update disclosures of interests and Non-Disclosure Agreements annually and when assigned to new efforts. Unless effectively mitigated as determined by the contracting officer, Sine Cera will not assign an employee any task under a contract for which a personal conflict of interest has been identified. Sine Cera maintains a log of supported organizations, services provided, and the staff supporting each task, including the applicable non-disclosure agreements, and reviews this log as a routine element of our bid/no bid decisions and teaming agreement decisions.
