Siemens Government Technologies Compliance

INTEGRITY is foundational to everything we do. To be a trustworthy partner, we behave in a manner consistent with unambiguous and binding principles of conduct that guide all of our employees and managers in our day-to-day activities.

Our company's values - responsibility, excellence, innovation - are the basis of what we mean by integrity. Our values describe how we see ourselves and how we want to be seen. Compliance is closely linked to our values because it represents more than simply following a set of rules: it is a state of mind.

Our compliance program provides employees with the tools, resources and knowledge to apply ethical practices in all that we do consistent with government policies and regulations. At SGT, compliance is more about how we choose to model and live our values than strict adherence to a minimum set of standards. We take great pride in what we do and in how we do it.

SGT’s compliance program supports a culture of integrity with five essential key functions:

  • Identify the regulatory and legal risks that the company faces and advise on those risks (identification)
  • Apply, design, and implement internal controls to protect the company and employees from those risks (prevention)
  • Monitor and report on the effectiveness of those controls in the management of SGT's exposure to risks (monitoring and detection)
  • Resolve compliance difficulties as they occur (collaboration and resolution)
  • Advise on applicable rules and controls (interpretative and advisory)
