Conflicts of Interest / Conflicts of Commitment

Georgia Southern University has adopted the USG Policy on Conflicts of Interest and Conflicts of Commitment .  The University maintains a separate policy requiring additional disclosure for research participation, including the Research Financial Conflict of Interest Disclosure Policy and compliance with disclosure requirements to federal grant agencies for foreign research collaboration and support.  University employees are also required to comply with state law governing conflicts of interest and codes of ethics for state employees and report certain business transactions as set forth in those statutes.

Each employee will receive a reminder to complete their required annual disclosures in February every year.  Employees may update their annual disclosures at any time by submitting a new disclosure form.

Guidelines for Approving Outside Activities may be found here .
