The Federal Acquisition Regulation requires that contractors have a written code of business ethics and conduct made available to employees; an ongoing business ethics awareness and compliance training program; and an internal control system with a periodic review of practices, procedures, and policies for compliance (Clause 52.203–13).
- Verify that the contractor has a code of business ethics and conduct that meets USAID standards and regulations.
- Provide implementers with copies of USAID’s policies on ethics and conflicts of interest, and with written explanations and examples of potential conflicts.
