Found 10 records similar to Directive on Ethical Behavior
The Values and Ethics Code for the Public Sector (VECPS) came into effect in April 2012 as an overarching guide for employees, to help clarify the role and expected behaviours of public servants, and outlines the fundamental values of the public sector of Canada. The VECPS was developed in consultation with public servants, public sector organizations and bargaining agents. The Code applies to the entire public sector, including departments, crown corporations and separate agencies. Based on the VECPS and in accordance with Section 6 of the Public Servants Disclosure Protection Act (PSDPA), Shared Services Canada (SSC) has developed its own Organizational Code (The Code) to provide guidance on ethical behaviour and decision-making in the context of day to day operations at SSC.
This Standard reflects SSC’s Organizational Code and is framed by the Financial Administration Act and the Federal Accountability Act. It consolidates the federal government’s measures on conflict of interest and anti-corruption as well as other legislative and policy requirements pertaining specifically to procurement.
The practice of soliciting, giving, and receiving donations, prizes, contributions, gifts, hospitality, and/or other benefits dates back centuries and is deeply rooted in human behaviour. The fact that gifts, hospitality, and/or other benefits are offered to produce friendly relations means that employees must be particularly mindful of possible conflict of interest situations and potential repercussions, due to SSC’s mandate and visibility. Employees must also pay particular attention to solicitation activities related to fundraising. The onus is on the SSC employee to understand the expected behaviour in these situations.
