on February 6, 2017
The Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) represent client procurement. They have offered their opinion on agencies bidding independent production companies against themselves.
They say it is wrong and against the principles of open and honest competition, stating: “The agency cannot put itself into a position where it operates as both judge and jury…this is unacceptable business practice and inconsistent with our code of conduct.”
