Conflict of Interest/Commitment Home
All University of Arkansas employees are expected to carry out their roles and responsibilities in an ethical manner and to abide by all applicable laws and policies. The campus policy, Fayetteville Policies and Procedures 404.0, Disclosure and Management of Potential Conflicts of Interest and/or Commitment, including Outside Activity, should be reviewed and understood by all university employees. This policy was developed in accordance with Board of Trustees policies 330.1, Employee and Contractor Conflict of Interest and 450.1, Outside Employment of Faculty and Non-Classified Staff Members for Compensation; Concurrent Employment.
Disclosure of potential conflicts must be done at multiple times during an employee’s career with the university:
- Upon hire. New employees should complete a disclosure within two weeks of their start date;
- Annually. All employees (full and part-time) must submit an annual disclosure; and
- As needed. Any time a new potential conflict arises throughout the year, a disclosure should be submitted.
All full-time (30 hour or more per week) faculty and non-classified staff are required to obtain prior approval for outside employment. In most cases, outside employment will also require submission of a conflict of interest disclosure as well.
