Code Of Conduct

The Code of Conduct is designed to provide a practical framework of acceptable behaviour.

Conduct Guidelines

The Code of Conduct framework provides guidance for decisions, actions and expected standards, it is not all encompassing and should be read in conjunctions with legislation, policies and procedures.

The answers to the following five questions should act as a conduct self reflection exercise:

  • Is my decision or conduct lawful?
  • Is my decision or conduct consistent with current Government policy and in line with DFSI's goals, values and Code of Conduct?
  • What will be the outcome for employees, work colleagues, the agency and other parties?
  • Do these outcomes raise a conflict of interest or lead to private gain at public expense?
  • Can the decision or conduct be justified in terms of the public interest and would it withstand public scrutiny?
