This Policy helps us to achieve that aim and we are all, the Board of Trustees and volunteers, bound by it. The Policy covers the offer or receipt of gifts and hospitality, what can be accepted and offered and how to record these in order to demonstrate that they do not improperly influence things like our procurement of services.
Our reputation is a key asset. Any allegation of improper conduct can damage our reputation, making it difficult for us to engage effectively with our members, government departments, educational institutions and corporate partners. Therefore it is vital that our business practices are ethical and transparent.
We have issued this Policy to help us demonstrate that transparency and high level of ethical standards.
