Integrity

    1. the agency and all staff involved in procurement can justify their procurement decisions
    2. those involved in procurement decisions stay impartial
    3. procurement processes are fair, transparent and reasonable
    4. all staff involved in procurement act responsibly, lawfully and with integrity.
  2. Each agency must have policies in place that help all staff involved in procurement to identify, notify and manage conflicts of interest. Each agency must be able to show how it uses sound judgement to manage conflicts of interest.

Integrity in Government Procurement

Government procurement is an area where integrity is of the utmost importance. The standards of integrity and conduct set by the Public Service Commissioner must be applied by individuals working in the public state sector.

The Public Services code of conduct and supporting information can be found on the Te Kawa Mataaho Public Service Commission’s website. Managing conflicts of interest: Guidance for public entities is available on the Office of the Auditor-General New Zealand website.
