1. Purpose of the policy
We have always set high standards of honesty and probity. Although the instances of fraud and theft are rare, and the council is not aware of any corruption, this policy is our stance on these matters. The Committee in Public Life produced a report which sets out seven principles of public life. We endorse these principles, which apply to everybody who is involved with the work of this council, including:
- suppliers and partners
- customers and residents who deal with us
In addition, the council expects the citizens of East Devon to be honest in their dealings with us.
