Employee Conflict of Interest Training

Throughout the year, staff from the Office of the General Counsel brief NSF employees on conflict-of-interest rules. NSF staff (including IPAs and Visiting Scientists) who file financial disclosure forms are all required to attend this session once a year. All are welcome!!!!

The Ethics Counselor relies primarily on case studies and NSF Manual 15 to introduce participants to the criminal conflicts laws; the basic standards of conduct regulations; specific rules applicable to NSF staff; and the rules covering proposal handling, recusals, acceptance of travel expenses, outside employment and activities, job hunting and acceptance of gifts.
