GIFTS, BENEFITS AND HOSPITALITY POLICY & REGISTER

The Victorian Public Sector Commission (VPSC) sets standards of conduct for the Victorian public sector. The DELWP model policy adopts and incorporates the VPSC minimum accountabilities for managing gifts, benefits and hospitality. The requirements cover how agencies, their board members and workplace participants:

  • respond to offers of gifts, benefits and hospitality
  • provide gifts, benefits and hospitality.

North East WRRG’s Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality Policy is consistent with the DELWP model policy and aims to minimise gift offers made to, and accepted by, board members and employees. As a public authority, we strive to earn public trust and meet community expectations. We avoid gifts and excessive hospitality. This helps to protect and promote public confidence in the integrity of our decision-making and of the organisation.

We discourage you from making an offer of a gift, benefit or hospitality (gift offer) to our board and employees. Our board and employees cannot accept a gift that may bring their integrity, or that of the organisation, into disrepute.

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.

Register of reportable gift offers

Gift offers are either:

  • token (inconsequential, trivial, and worth less than $50), or
  • reportable (non-token).

We must:

  • keep a register of all reportable gift offers
  • publish a de-identified copy that complies with privacy laws.
