Victorian Government Purchasing Board
Achieving Excellence in Government Procurement

What the Victorian Government expects from suppliers

The Victorian State Government (the State) is committed to ethical, sustainable and socially responsible procurement. In ensuring that our suppliers maintain the same values as the Government, the State has established a Supplier Code of Conduct (the Code).  

The Code outlines the minimum ethical standards in behaviour that suppliers will aspire to meet when conducting business with, or on behalf of, the State in the areas of: 

A.            integrity, ethics and conduct;
B.            conflict of interest, gifts, benefits and hospitality;
C.            corporate governance;
D.            labour and human rights;
E.            health and safety; and
F.            environmental management.

We have recently updated the Code within the labour and human rights section to include a reference to modern slavery.
