What does the Institute of Supply Management (formerly the NAPM) code of ethics say about accepting supplier favors and gifts?

Bryan Janz was just arriving back from lunch when his office phone rang. It was his
wife, Nina, calling from home. Nina told Bryan that FedEx had just delivered a package
addressed to her. The package contained a beautiful clock now sitting over the fireplace. In
fact, Nina said, “the clock looks absolutely beautiful on our living room fireplace”. Thinking the
clock was from a family member, Bryan asked who sent the present. She said she did not
recognize the name—the clock was from Mr. James McEnroe. Bryan immediately told Nina
that she had to repack the clock because it was from a supplier who has been trying to win
business from Bryan’s company. They definitely could not accept the clock. Nina was very
upset, and responded that the clock was perfect for the room and, besides, the clock came to
their home, not to Bryan’s office. Because of Nina’s attachment to the clock, Bryan was unsure
about what to do.
