The Call Centre Code has been developed to assist people to understand the Victoria Government’s requirements and expectations in relation to the Victorian call centre industry. It aims to ensure that work is carried out lawfully, fairly, efficiently and safely for the benefits of all people within the call centre industry.
Call Centre Code considerations
The Call Centre Code is a Victorian Government policy that applies to both government-operated call centres and private sector organisations contracted to the Victorian Government to provide call centre services.
Compliance with the Call Centre Code is a condition of any contract in which a private sector organisation provides call centre services to the Victorian Government. To ensure businesses supplying call centre services to the Victorian Government are complying with the Code, invitees are required to lodge a completed Checklist for Compliance with the Call Centre Code and a signed Declaration of Compliance with their offer. Failure to submit a completed Checklist for Compliance with the Call Centre Code and a signed Declaration of Compliance will disqualify the offer from evaluation.
Government buyers must include the model contract clause in procurement contracts with suppliers providing call centre services to this will create a binding contractual obligation on the supplier to comply with the Call Centre Code.
