1.30.25. Code of Conduct for Procurement

The Code of Conduct for Procurement consolidates the government's existing legal, regulatory and policy requirements into a concise and transparent statement of the expectations that the government has of its employees and its suppliers. It ensures that public servants and suppliers are working from the same statement of expectations and commitments that clearly outline what is acceptable conduct when contracting with the government. The Code applies to all procurements done by Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) (for PWGSC and/or on behalf of client departments) and it requires that PWGSC abide by the legislation and policies outlined in the Code. It is a single point of reference to key responsibilities and obligations of public servants and suppliers.
