Read and acknowledge the updated 2023 Supplier Code of Conduct
The Auckland Transport Supplier Code of Conduct is the foundation document requiring commitment from our suppliers to best practice relating to social, environmental, ethical and financial responsibility. The scope of the Code includes suppliers’ parents, affiliates, subsidiaries and subcontractors.
AT’s first Supplier Code was published in 2019. Following review of the Supplier Code between February 2023 and July 2023, a number of updates have been identified and have been incorporated into a revised 2023 version, which has now been approved by the AT Board.
Suppliers are required to commit to the expectations under each of the seven principles detailed in the 2023 Supplier Code, as a condition of doing business with AT.

Improvements to the purchase order process
We are making it easier for our suppliers to work with us by initiating improvements to our Purchase order (PO) requisitioning process for all purchases of $25,000 or less.
From August, AT will automatically send out (upon approval) an email with a PDF copy of the Purchase order containing the PO number and line-item details with an agreed PO value. This email will be sent to the email address we have captured for each of our suppliers’ Accounts Receivable teams, as well as the supplier contact for that purchase.
The PO number, line-item reference(s) and detail of the goods and/or services provided should always be added to your invoice to ensure prompt payment. For more information on our Purchase order and invoicing processes, please click on the link below.
