***Supplier Code of Conduct***
The Victorian Government has implemented a Supplier Code of Conduct (the Code) to support its 2014 election commitment to ensure ethical, sustainable and socially responsible procurement.
The Victorian Government views its suppliers as partners and cares about the way that they do business when providing goods or services, including construction works and services, to the Victorian Government.
The Code describes the minimum expectations in the areas of: integrity, ethics and conduct; conflict of interest, gifts, benefits and hospitality; corporate governance; labour and human rights; health and safety; and environmental management.
Suppliers to the Victorian Government are advised to review the Code and ensure that relevant areas of their business and supply chain meet these standards.
Government buyers can find out more under the Code policy page of this website.
For further information please contact the VGPB Secretariat on 9651 1699 or alternatively contact your internal procurement unit or equivalent.
