Via Christi Health System Vendor Compliance It is the responsibility of the Vendor to ensure that its Representatives understand and comply with the Via Christi Health System Standards of Conduct and Conflicts of Interest policy and to inform its Via Christi Business Contact (or member of Via Christi management) if and when any situation develops that causes the Vendor to operate in violation of the expectations set forth in the Standards of Conduct. Via Christi Vendors are expected to self-monitor their compliance with the Standards of Conduct. In addition to any other rights Via Christi may have under its agreement with Vendor, Via Christi may request the immediate removal of any Vendor (or employee, agent or subcontractor thereof) who behaves in a manner that is unlawful or inconsistent with the Standards of Conduct or any Via Christi policy. Vendor agrees that: it has not been convicted of a criminal offense related to health care, it is not currently listed by a federal or state agency as excluded or otherwise ineligible for employment by an entity that receives federal health care funding, and it is not currently listed on the General Services Administration (GSA) List of Parties Excluded from the Federal Procurement and Non-Procurement Programs or the Office of Inspector General (OIG) List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE). Reporting of Questionable Behavior and/or Possible Violations If a Vendor wishes to report a questionable behavior or possible violation of the Standards of Conduct, Via Christi has a variety of resources available to assist Vendors. Vendors are encouraged to work with their primary Via Christi Business Contact in resolving a business practice or compliance concern. However, Via Christi recognizes that there may be times when this is not possible or appropriate. In such instances, Vendors should contact any of the following: 1. Call the Via Christi Compliance Hotline at 1-800-794-9027. 2. Call the Corporate Responsibility Officer for the Via Christi ministry. 3. Call the Corporate Responsibility Officer for the Via Christi Health System, Shelley Koltnow, 316-858-4909. 4. Send a letter to the Corporate Responsibility Office at Via Christi Health System, 3720 East Bayley, Wichita, Kansas 67218. Via Christi will not tolerate any retribution or retaliation taken against any individual who has, in good faith, sought out advice or has reported questionable behavior and/or a possible violation.
