This Code of Conduct details AEPI’s expectations and forms part of an agreement made with anyone representing AEPI. Breaches of the Code of Conduct are grounds for termination of a working relationship.

AEPI has a zero-tolerance position on bribery and corruption. Our Anti-Bribery & Corruption Policy sets out the responsibilities of AEPI and those who work for us with regard to observing and upholding this position.
MONITORING AND EVALUATION FRAMEWORK
How AEPI measures and makes visible the results and impact it achieves in its parliamentary support programmes.
AEPI is committed to keeping its financial affairs in good order, meeting recognised international accounting standards, and robustly transparent. Whereas in most accounting, the principle of “two pairs of eyes” is necessary to ensure transparent bookkeeping, AEPI takes it one step further and will work with “three pairs of eyes”.
The purchase of goods and services is necessary for the smooth operation of AEPI. To manage the organisations resources efficiently, a Procurement Policy needs to be in place to ensure best practices are followed.
This policy gives the guidelines for all travel made by the AEPI Management Board, members, specialists and consultants at the request of AEPI.
