We must be fair, impartial, responsible, and trustworthy

The State Services is made up of many organisations with powers to carry out the work of New Zealand's democratically elected governments.
Whether we work in a department or in a Crown entity, we must act with a spirit of service to the community and meet the same high standards of integrity and conduct in everything we do.
We must comply with the standards of integrity and conduct set out in this code. As part of complying with this code, our organisations must maintain policies and procedures that are consistent with it.
