Staff gift register

In accordance with our corporate policies to guide behaviour at work, gifts may only be accepted where there is a justifiable business purpose. Staff are required to declare all gifts.

What the staff gift register lists

The staff gift register is a summary of gifts accepted and declared by our staff. The information is collated on a quarterly basis then published the following quarter.

The register only names senior managers. All other employees are referred to by position title only.

Some gifts are provided to groups rather than individuals. Where appropriate these gifts have been consolidated and a total value is shown along with the number of staff included.

Where a gift is offered to Auckland Council, rather than a specific staff member, this has been indicated.

This register does not include low value gifts (under $10). These gifts include light refreshments and business courtesy items such as branded pens and water bottles that are generally not required to be declared under Our Charter.

Gifts to employees of council-controlled organisations

This register is for Auckland Council and does not include council controlled organisations such as Watercare and Auckland Transport. These organisations maintain their own registers.
