Conflict of Interest Policy

The Conflict of Interest policy establishes standards that provide a reasonable expectation that the design, conduct and reporting of projects wholly or in part funded under federal financial assistance awards (e.g., grant, cooperative agreement, or technology investment agreement) will be free of bias resulting from financial conflicts of interest or organizational conflicts of interest.
The purpose of this policy is to meet the requirements of federal awarding agencies for non-federal entities to disclose in writing any potential conflicts of interest in accordance with applicable Federal awarding agency policy. 2 CFR 200.112 The Department of Public Service’s cognizant agency is the U.S. Department of Energy which has established an interim conflict of interest policy.
