              Council’s Selective Purchasing Policy – Restrictions Relating to
              Persons Doing or Willing to Do, Business in, or with, Myanmar.
Council has adopted a policy in recognition of its role in promoting universal respect for human
rights and fundamental freedoms, and the protection of democratic principles, which seeks to
damage the economic viability of the military regime in Myanmar with a view to ending injustice and
violations of human rights in Myanmar.

The Policy provides that Council will not purchase goods or services provided by those who
conduct a business in, or with, Myanmar, or have investments in Myanmar, or who are willing to do
so, except if:

       purchases from the person do not exceed $10,000 in any financial year;
       a financial loss to Council would result, equal to 5% of the contract’s value or $5,000,
        whichever is the lesser amount; or
       the particular good or service is necessary for the efficient operation of Council, or the
        health, safety and welfare of the public, and no comparable product is available without
        substantial loss occurring.

In order for Council to give consideration to making a purchase of goods or services from you or
your company or other entity, it will be necessary for the following declaration to be completed:
