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.

TARGET AUDIENCE

All Program Officers and officials at or above a comparable level are *required* to participate in at least one briefing each calendar year.

REGISTRATION/COST

The briefings are free, open to all staff and no registration is required (unless otherwise indicated).
