CONTRACTING: Regular supplies

07 November 2017  

Melanie Pears and Tim Care take a look at the recently published Supplier Code of Conduct

The Supplier Code of Conduct has been introduced by the government with the intention of helping suppliers understand the standards expected of them when they are contracting with the government. It is centred on the idea that suppliers are an extension of government business and taxpayers expect the government to ensure that suppliers act fairly and ethically. Accordingly, the code exists so suppliers can understand the behaviours that are expected when they work with the government. Ultimately, the overall objective of the code is to encourage improved performance throughout government supply chains.
