Code of Conduct

The Code of Conduct is one of management's most important tools for establishing a strong control environment. The Code of Conduct sets an appropriate tone at the top by outlining the standards and expectations regarding employee honesty, integrity, ethical behavior, and by providing mechanisms for employees to report questionable or improper activities and behaviors. To comply with MMB Statewide Operating Policy 0103-01, Code of Conduct, each agency also needs to have a suitable internal control structure that will ensure the agency's mission, goals and objectives are achieved.
