Modern Slavery

At USQ we are committed to serving our employees, students and communities and ensuring our values are reflected in all that we do.
Through our employees, suppliers and partners we strive for excellence to ensure our products and services are delivered ethically and responsibly. Our procurement processes establish clear guidelines for maintaining sustainable and social integrity which includes reporting and remediating modern slavery risks.

USQ aspires to an organisational climate where all students, employees and partners feel confident and comfortable about raising concerns or making legitimate and grounded complaints. 

In accordance with the University's Procurement Procedure, the University will maintain a fair, equitable and non-discriminatory process for addressing Complaints and concerns raised about University Procurement activities in accordance with the USQ Complaint Management Framework.

The University encourages informal resolution of issues in the first instance. For example, an Employee Authorised to Purchase will attempt to resolve Complaints where possible, by providing more information. Communications regarding Complaints will be kept as signed and dated file notes.

If informal resolution is not successful, a Complaint may be made in writing to the Manager (Procurement) or, if the Complaint is about the Manager (Procurement), to the CFO.

Complaints about Procurement activities will be investigated by the Manager (Procurement), CFO or another University Member as appropriate.

The following resources are available to support the University's suppliers and partners.

Further resources will be made available soon.
