Procurement Code of Conduct

Procurement Code of Conduct

A new guide is now available within this webpage, to provide individuals with an overview of their code of conduct responsibilities when conducting procurement activities.

The document will provide guidance and an overview of:

  • Code of Conduct
  • Conflict of Interest
  • The Bribery Act
  • Gifts & Hospitality


All individuals within a tender evaluation are jointly responsible for ensuring that the procurement process, in addition to all communications, meetings, discussions etc. are properly conducted in an equitable and transparent manner and that all documentation and decisions are recorded for provision of a robust audit trail. Furthermore, individuals should respect confidentiality of information and never use it for personal gain.

All stakeholders involved in a tender evaluation, will now be required to submit a declaration form to the Procurement Office, prior to obtaining access to the tender responses.
