HANDLING GOVERNMENT BUSINESS

Working with government organizations
When working with government organizations and officials – whether as customers, regulators or partners – we must ensure that our activities and interactions demonstrate the company’s commitment to ethical conduct. Adherence to the law and compliance to specific regulations are expected.
