As required by Board Policy 8.2.18.2, Conflicts of Interest, Conflicts of Commitment, and Outside Activities(https://www.usg.edu/policymanual/section8/policy/C224/), the University has updated its internal Conflicts of Interest, Conflicts of Commitment, and Outside Activities Policy, effective September 5, 2019.

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. UGA employees are referred to State Conflict of Interest Statutes O.C.G.A. § 45-10-20 through § 45-10-70.
