Gifts, Benefits, Bribes and Hospitality Standard Operating Procedure

12 October 2021

This standard operating procedure (SOP) seeks to ensure that the integrity of JACS and the ACTPS is not, and does not appear to be, compromised through the acceptance or offering of gifts, benefits, bribes or hospitality. It sets out  the  procedures that employees should follow in:

  • deciding whether to accept a gift, benefit or hospitality
  • responding  to  suspected offers of  bribes
  • presenting a  gift on  behalf  of  JACS
  • providing  hospitality  on  behalf  JACS.

JACS employees and  representatives of the Directorate must follow this SOP and the following policies, which  they articulate:

  • ACT Government Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality Policy (the ACTPS Policy) 
  • JACS Director-General’s Financial Instruction 2.5 Official  Hospitality, Gifts and Benefits
  • ACTPS Healthy Food and Drink Choices Policy
  • JACS Fraud and Corruption Prevention  Plan
