AAGIM Statement of Business Ethics

GENERAL

Incentives, gifts, benefits:

AAGIM expects its staff to decline offers of gifts, benefits, travel, accommodation, hospitality or other incentives if they think that the person offering the gift, or a fair observer, might think that they would be influenced in the way they do their job as a result of the gift.

 

Conflicts of Interests:

All AAGIM staff are required to disclose any potential conflicts of interest.  AAGIM extends this requirement to all our business partners, lessees, contractors and suppliers.

 

Confidentiality:

All AAGIM information should be treated as confidential unless otherwise indicated.

 

Communication:

All communication should be clear, direct and accountable to minimise the risk of perception of inappropriate influence being brought to bear on the business relationship.

Our key business principles:

The principle of “best value for money” is at the core of all AAGIM’s business relationships with its suppliers of goods and services.  Best value for money does not automatically mean the lowest price.  Rather, AAGIM will balance a range of relevant factors including but not limited to initial cost, whole-of-life costs, quality, reliability, and timeliness in determining true value for money.  Part of obtaining best value for money also includes ensuring all our business relationships are honest, ethical, fair and consistent.  Our business dealings will be transparent and open to scrutiny wherever necessary.

 

What you can expect from us:
