The MFAT Commercial Division would like to share with you a new supplier code of conduct that has been updated.
The new code requires all suppliers to MFAT to act lawfully and adhere to our policies and procedures. The intent of this document is to make our expectations of suppliers clear, and provide a vehicle for subcontractors to suppliers to be aware of our expectations.

It has been specifically developed to fully cover both the conduct standards approved by Cabinet for suppliers in NZ, and the international standards required for our work overseas. It replaces two previous documents totaling 40+ pages and did not address the conduct of domestic suppliers. In this regard the new code is more concise and much easier to read than our previous guidance, as well as encompassing all suppliers, not just those who support the Aid Programme.

The Code of Conduct has specifically been updated to include UN requirements, such as the new PSEAH policy:

It also reflects the New Zealand Government Procurement Supplier Code of Conduct approved by Cabinet and published by MBIE as Procurement Functional Lead:
