Conflict of Interest Code feedback requested


The Santa Clara Valley Water District will begin the process of updating our Conflict of Interest (COI) Code, and public feedback is welcomed.

The COI Code lists water district positions that are required to disclose their economic interests through the Form 700 filing process. State law requires the district to review our COI Code and assess which district positions belong in the COI Code and at what level/category each employee is required to disclose.

Whether a district position is included in the COI depends on whether the position's responsibilities include:

"(1) making or (2) participation in the making of [governmental] decisions which may foreseeably have a material effect on any financial interest."

The public may make recommendations to the Ethics & Equal Opportunity Programs Unit by emailing [email protected].
