Procurement accounts for 70% of an organization's revenue; a very attractive prospect for wrongdoers to commit fraudulent acts. Corruption hurts everyone: individual persons, families, communities, organizations, and the entire country; it is elusive and surreptitious in nature.
People who engage in corrupt activities benefit in the short-term, but knowingly and unknowingly cause permanent long-term damage to all stakeholders. This is in part mainly because Procurement Fraud possess many forms and can occur at any stage within the Procurement and Tender Cycle.

Mr. Wesley Superville
Mr. Wesley Superville’s passion for Supply Chain Management heralds from 20 years of combined experience in various supply chain functions including Warehouse Specialist, Inventory Controller, Purchasing Officer, and Materials and Logistics Supervisor in the Oil and Gas, Telecommunications and FMCG industries of Trinidad and Tobago.
A holder of the MCIPS qualification and recent completion of a Master of Business Administration in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Wesley began lecturing the CIPS program in 2014 at Purchasing Supply and Management Tuition Services under the close mentorship of Mr. Noel Small.
In 2019, he joined the CTS family as a CIPS lecturer and steadfastly demonstrated the tangible aptitude of expertise, compassion, and dedication of high-quality support to his students. His deportment is friendly, welcoming, and quirky with well-rounded professional experience that affords him to effectively guide his CIPS students both in their academics and careers.
However, as with all iceberg successes, there were submerged challenges and sacrifices which molded him throughout his journey; Wesley began as a laborer at a very young age in the warehouses of local supermarkets. His grassroots beginnings drove him to educate persons about the importance of the CIPS program together with critical role that Warehousing and Inventory Management plays throughout the supply chain, in order to bring understanding, respect and best-practice to the qualification and profession.
In a private capacity he does consultation, resume writing, and assist jobseekers find employment in different supply chain positions. His mantra? Advance to be recognized! Wesley continuously progresses his academics and lets his work performance and student feedback do the talking. His greatest achievement? Continuously striving for humility.
He quotes: “Learning is a continuous cyclical exchange; there is so much to learn from the people I encounter, especially my students. They have a lot to offer, because supply chain management exists everywhere.”
