While business practices in the private sector often include generous hosting of clients, regulations in the public sector are much more stringent. In order to uphold the public trust, public officials must be mindful of conflict of interest rules. In this workshop, we will address three elements of the Political Reform Act (PRA): economic (Form 700) disclosure requirements; limitations on gifts; and conflicts of interest/disqualification. Compliance with these three elements of the PRA will help public officials avoid making, participating in or influencing governmental decisions in which they have a financial interest and, help keep them scandal-free.
