Code of Ethics

The Code of Ethics for the community is a set of rules, norms, and values that regulate the behavior of its members. It defines how members should interact with one another, what actions are permissible or not, and how to resolve conflicts and disputes. It is important that the code is clear and understandable to all members of the community so that everyone knows what is expected of them and what is prohibited.

The Code of Ethics for the community is an important tool for maintaining a healthy and safe environment for all members. If all participants adhere to it, it helps to build trust and respect between them, create a positive image of the community, and attract new members.

The effectiveness of the code of ethics will be periodically evaluated and updated as necessary to ensure its continued relevance and effectiveness.

This code of ethics is designed to serve as a guide for participants in the activity of monitoring government procurement and to promote ethical behavior and transparency in the procurement process.
