We strongly advise that Queensland Government employees involved in any aspect of the procurement process should not accept gifts or benefits.
Gifts and Benefits Directive and Guideline
The Queensland Public Service Commission released a Gifts and Benefits Directive (PDF, 44KB) and Gifts and Benefits Guideline (PDF, 63KB) effective 1 January 2010 for the giving and receipt of gifts and benefits by employees and agencies of the Queensland Public Service.
Suppliers and potential suppliers to the Queensland Government should be aware that a public service employee should only accept a gift or benefit if it complies with the Directive (PDF, 44KB) and Guideline (PDF, 63KB).
