I stumbled across this today on a Goverment website:
The Civil Service Code, first published in 1996, sets out the core Civil Service values and the standards of behaviour expected of all civil servants in upholding these values.
- Integrity – putting the obligations of public service above personal interests
- Honesty – being truthful and open
- Objectivity – basing advice and decisions on rigorous analysis of the evidence
- Impartiality – acting solely according to the merits of the case and serving governments of different political parties
When outsourcing, particularly when the business partner has direct contact with the end user, it is de riguer to demand identical standards from the service provider, so this all applies to Atos too.
There is clearly an internal and external problem monotoring compliance!!!
