Doing Business with Council


Doing Business with Council

Council values its relationship with suppliers, but has a responsibility to ensure that all transactions are entered into ensuring impartiality and fairness and offering the best possible value for money. For that reason, Council is providing a suite of current policies and procedures relevant to ‘Doing Business with Council’.

Please read the Yass Valley Council’s GOV-POL-5 Statement of Business Ethics, which sets out the ethical ground rules for conducting business with Council. You are urged to ensure that all relevant people within your organisation read and understand this document.

Please also see the Yass Valley Council’s FM-POL-1 Procurement Policy which documents the guiding principles for Council and its employees in the procurement of goods and services.

In addition to the information detailed in the above documents, we would draw your
attention to the following policy requirements.

  1. GOV-POL-21 Gifts and Benefits - Council policy prohibits the acceptance of any gift or benefit by a Council employee where it could be, or may be seen to be, a means of influence that can compromise, or appear to compromise, that employee’s decision making, integrity and impartiality. Suppliers to Council should not offer any gifts or benefits to Council employees.
  2. No Order No Supply – All Council purchases for goods or services must be accompanied by an official Council purchase order. Suppliers should not accept verbal orders from Council employees.
