It’s key principles and accountabilities are:

  • Obligations: board members and employees act in accordance with their respective obligations and with good governance practice.
  • Public interest: board members and employees act in the public interest, in compliance with this policy.
  • Culture of integrity: the organisation fosters a culture of integrity. Board members and employees are supported to raise any unresolved gifts issues.
  • Risk-based: the organisation’s risks in relation to gift offers are assessed, managed, and monitored.
  • Processes: the organisation’s procedures are transparent and accountable. Processes are in place to ensure that board members and employees are aware of the requirements of this policy and how to comply with it.
