CONFLICT OF INTEREST
Both state law and board policy require school board trustees, the superintendent and any employee "who exercises discretion in the planning, recommending, selecting or contracting of a vendor" to make a timely disclosure of a conflict of interest. Similarly vendors are required to disclose any relationship with a trustee or an employee, which constitutes a conflict of interest.
Forms to disclose a conflict of interest are available from the Texas Ethics Commission. Employees should file a Form CIS with the Chief Financial Officer within seven days of learning of a conflict. Vendors should file Form CIQ with the Chief Financial Officer.
Employees can find more information on these disclosure requirements in Board Policy BBFA(Legal).
