Doing Business with Us

In the course of carrying out our core function of conducting State, Local Government, Aboriginal Land Council and certain other statutory elections, New South Wales Electoral Commission (NSWEC) has dealings with many organisations including the private sector, other government agencies and non-government agencies.

These dealings include purchasing goods and services, contracting out activities that would otherwise have been done by the NSWEC and entering into partnerships to undertake particular activities.

The NSWEC is committed to conducting its business affairs on a sound commercial and ethical basis in a manner consistent with NSW Government and the NSWEC policies. Accordingly, the NSWEC expects high standards of ethical behaviour from our employees, contractors, consultants and partners. Please read our Statement of Business Ethics in our Policies section for more information. 

The principle of best value for money is the basis for all the NSWEC’s business relationships with organisations supplying goods and services. Best value for money does not automatically mean the lowest price. The NSWEC will balance all relevant factors, including cost, quality, reliability, sustainability, experience and timeliness in determining true value for money.
