- Registering interest in supplying goods or services to Westpac,
- On-boarding new suppliers, including providing advice regarding the invoicing and payment process,
- Ensuring valid invoices are paid within 30 days, and obligations under the Australian Supplier Payment Code are met,
- Any queries, complaints, or escalations.

In addition to the Supplier Advocacy channel, please note the Westpac Whistleblower Policy.
Westpac Whistleblower Policy
Westpac has a dedicated Whistleblower Channel which allows suppliers (including their current and former employees) who have knowledge of, or reason to suspect, any reportable conduct which involves Westpac, and anyone connected within the Westpac Group to confidentially raise their concerns. Reports can be completely anonymous, or you can identify yourself to those authorised by Westpac to manage such reports. More details can be found here: or search “Speaking Up Policy” at www.westpac.com.au.
Broadly, “reportable conduct” under our policy includes any conduct which is dishonest, corrupt, fraudulent, or illegal, including any suspected modern slavery or human rights violations, involving Westpac’s operations or supply chain. Safely report such conduct via our Speak Up reporting system at http://westpac.whispli.com/whistleblowing or by calling a dedicated 24-hour independent Whistleblower Hotline: 1800 989 569 (an Australian free-call number), which is operated by a third party. The telephone numbers for the 24-hour independent Whistleblower Hotline available in other jurisdictions are set out in the policy.
