In addition to the Tendering Policy, Council has adopted a Statement of Business Ethics. The Statement provides guidance for all organisations when doing business with Council. It outlines the Council’s ethical standards and our expectation that goods and service providers and contractors will comply with these standards in all their dealings with us. The Statement also outlines what providers and contractors can expect of the Council.
Our Tendering Policy and the Statement of Business Ethics are designed to be consistent with our obligations under the Local Government Act 1993 and related regulations. Our staff is expected to maintain high standards of integrity and ethical conduct, consistent with the positions of trust they hold and we expect no less of the service providers and contractors that undertake work for us.
This Statement is designed to ensure that business relationships between service providers and contractors are fair and productive for all.
