Consultants and New Positions Rules

The law requires consultants and new positions that make or participate in making governmental decisions to file under the broadest disclosure category in the agency’s conflict of interest code the consultant or new position works for. If the new position or consultant performs limited duties, the agency may tailor the disclosure requirements to the duties performed. 

If the agency provides tailored disclosure, the agency must provide a written description of the position's duties and, based upon that description, a statement of the extent of disclosure requirements. To assist agencies in complying with this requirement, the FPPC created the forms below.
