Conflicts of Interest, Conflicts of Commitment, and Outside Activities
This policy follows the University System of Georgia (USG) Business Procedures Manual except where identified in the section labelled UGA Procedures below. All employees should adhere to the full Business Procedures Manual in addition to the UGA Procedures.
Each University of Georgia (UGA) employee shall make every reasonable effort to avoid actual or apparent conflicts of interests. An apparent conflict exists when a reasonable person would conclude from the circumstances that the employee’s ability to protect the public interest, or perform public duties, is compromised by a personal, financial, or business interest. An apparent conflict can exist even in the absence of a legal conflict of interest.
