Supplier Code of Conduct – July 2017
The Victorian Government is implementing a Supplier Code of Conduct effective from 1 July 2017.
Construction contracts will not be amended to refer to the Code. Practitioners need to amend RFT, RFQ, EOI etc templates to require the Commitment Letter either as a stand alone document or as a returnable schedule.
The Construction Supplier Register is in the process of seeking Commitment Letters from suppliers on the register. During this transition period practitioners should check with the CSR as to the status of that work and to determine if you need to ask for a Commitment Letter or not.
