Community Source Solutions Inc. (CSSI) is committed to doing business in a legal, ethical and socially responsible manner. To maintain these standards, CSSI desires to do business with Suppliers whose practices are consistent with our principles of business conduct and those of our clients. Our Supplier Approval Program has developed a Supplier Code of Conduct, with consultation from industry leading organizations. Our Supplier Code of Conduct sets forth the types of standards and practices that we, and our clients, expect from our Suppliers.
CSSI Suppliers are expected to treat our clients with courtesy and respect by providing open and honest communication regarding the status of any work. Suppliers are expected to utilize the full functions of our cloudbased program and update the system in accordance with the status of all purchase orders, as assigned by CSSI and our clients in order to ensure seamless customer service.
CSSI expects Suppliers to comply, at a minimum, with all local and applicable labour laws and employment standards such as compensating workers in compliance with all applicable wages, benefit and employment standards laws. We expect that Suppliers will only use qualified professionals.
CSSI expects that the occupational health and safety of employees is a priority. The Supplier shall take appropriate action, such as policies, procedures and contingency measures, in order to prevent occupational illnesses and work-related accidents by providing a safe and healthy work environment.
Solicited quotations are not billable. CSSI and our clients do not pay for quotations. As such, invoices for solicited quotations/estimates will not be accepted or processed. Suppliers that bill for quotations will be discharged from the Approved Supplier Program
Suppliers must not complete any work, on any property, without a system issued Purchase Order. Only work that is approved by a Purchase Order will be deemed payable.
Suppliers are not to solicit, directly or indirectly, any employee involved in the management/operation of the communities served. Suppliers who solicit employees to transition into employment into their own firms or make recommendations for employees to transition into other firms may be immediately removed from the Approved Supplier Program.
As a Supplier of CSSI’s Approved Supplier Program, I recognize that my company’s conduct may impact how CSSI is seen by its clients and may therefore affect my approval status within CSSI’s Program. Accordingly, I undertake to adhere to the Supplier Code of Conduct noted above and acknowledge that failure to do so may result in my company’s immediate discharge from the Approved Supplier Program.
