Gifts and Hospitality Policy for Council Officers

The Gifts and Hospitality Policy for Council Officers provides staff with guidelines on the acceptance or refusal of gifts or offers of gifts, received in the course of their duties.

The purpose of this policy is to:

  • state the principles for Council Officers to follow when considering whether to accept gifts or hospitality.
  • specify the categories of gifts and hospitality Council Officers are able to accept under this policy.
  • state the requirements and process for declaring offers of gifts, benefits, and hospitality.
  • provide an overview of Council’s accountability and reporting framework in relation to gifts and hospitality.
