Bendigo and Adelaide Bank have recently implemented a Purchase Order system. A purchase order establishes the binding agreement and confirmation to deliver the goods or service. Purchase Orders are required to be raised by the business prior to any goods and services being delivered to the Bank. Furthermore, we have moved to a no Purchase Order no Pay methodology, whereby the invoice must reference a valid Purchase Order in order to be processed.
Suppliers will be provided with a purchase order number to include on all invoices before a payment can be made. View the Purchase Order Terms & Conditions PDF for more information.
Supplier Code of Conduct
We source goods and services from over 2,000 suppliers, with an annual procurement spend of close to $700 million. Our suppliers are a critical part of our success, and we diligently select and retain suppliers who share similar values to ours. We have created a Supplier Code of Conduct that calls attention to these values and the minimum requirements we expect our suppliers to meet or exceed.

Enterprise Procurement guiding principles
Enterprise Procurement has the responsibility to deliver procurement as a service to the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group (BEN).
BEN will be guided by sound commercial and ethical principles that facilitate project delivery, while always acting in the interest of the customer, the project, BEN businesses, stakeholders, and the environment.
These principles enable us to:
- Source the best requirements fit (sourcing solutions);
- Develop suppliers that are capable of delivering the Bank’s requirements (supplier capability);
- Seek best prices for the requirements fit (value for money);
- Manage suppliers to ensure obligations are delivered and ongoing performance enhanced (solution delivery)
- Ensure contractual arrangements meet acceptable risk profiles (acceptable risk);
- Maintain an environment where all suppliers are treated fairly, equally and ethically (ethical and fair treatment);
- Consider impacts on the environment, corporate responsibility, and social responsibility (environmental, corporate & social responsibility);
- Ensure internal and external processes are accountable, transparent and impartial (probity, accountability and transparency); and
- Manage, develop, and maintain procurement tools, policies and procedures to a high standard (tools, policies & procedures)
