Conflict of Interest Policy

General Statement

A potential conflict of interest occurs when a divergence develops between an
individual's private interests and his/her professional obligations to the University
and its auxiliary organizations such that an independent observer might reasonably
question whether the individual's professional actions or decisions are determined
by considerations of personal gain, financial or otherwise.


A conflict of interest exists when a review reasonably determines that a significant
financial interest could directly and significantly affect the design, conduct, and
reporting of the proposed activities. Upon such a finding, the CSUB Student Union
Board of Directors, Inc. will refer the actual or potential conflict to the office of the
Vice President for Business and Administrative Services where an investigation will
be implemented. The CSUB Student Union Board of Directors, Inc. will abide by the
findings of the independent review committee.


Policy
The CSU Bakersfield Student Union Board of Directors, Inc., will be required to
complete a Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700) annually at the start of the
academic year and or whenever a new member is brought on to fill an existing
vacancy created by the resignation or removal of a Board of Directors member.


Procedure
The CSUB Student Union Board of Directors, Inc., Secretary will issue each of the
Board of Directors a Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700) and instructions at
the beginning of the academic year to coincide with the Board of Director's
orientation. The Board's Secretary will monitor the return of the forms in a timely
manner. The originals will be kept on file in the Office of Business and
Administrative Services. A copy of the forms will be kept locally in the CSUB
Student Union Director's Office.
