The Stepnell Group take their responsibilities for accurate and honest estimating very seriously. As the first activity that they undertake, it is important that they meet the expectations of a potential customer and that that customer is aware of the procedures and integrity with which The Group will tackle that task.
The Group are aware of the potential for anti-competitive and corrupt activities and confirm the following:
● On no account will any company within The Group providing a tender allow any form of inducements to be paid to itself or any employee involved in the tender without the express authorisation of the customer.
● Any suspicion of corrupt activity will be investigated thoroughly by internal staff or external agencies.
● The Group do not condone cover pricing and will neither give nor take cover prices.
● All employees involved in estimating are aware of this procedure and our anti-corruption practices. These will be reinforced on a regular basis.
