Conflict of Interest Disclosure Form

Members of the Bureau Advisory Committee are public officials, based on State law ORS 244.020(15), and as such are required to disclose conflicts of interest. Under Oregon Revised Statute 244.020(3), an appointee has conflict of interest when participating in an official action which could or would result in a financial benefit or avoidance of detriment to the public official, a relative of the public official, or a business with which either is associated.

If you have a conflict of interest you must fill out the "Conflict of Interest Disclosure Form" and turn it into the Bureau Advisory Committee liaison.
