Office of General Counsel
The California Political Reform Act requires certain state and local government officials (including some University employees) to disclosure their personal financial interests. The purpose of financial disclosure is to alert public officials to personal interests that might be affected while they are performing their official duties (i.e., making governmental decisions). Disclosure also helps inform the public about potential conflicts of interest.
Disclosure is made on the Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700). The form must be filed annually. Filed forms are public documents that must be made available to anyone who requests them.
Should you have any questions after reviewing the information below, please feel free to seek the help of your Conflict of Interest coordinator.
