Conflict of Interest Disclosures

Effective January 1, 2006, Chapter 176 of the Local Government Code requires a person who contracts or seeks to contract with the Arlington Independent School District for the sale or purchase of property, goods, or services to file a conflict of interest questionnaire with the District. The questionnaire must be filed no later than the seventh businesses day after the date that the person: (1) begins contract discussions or negotiations with the District; or (2) submits to the District a response to a request for proposal or bid, correspondence, or another writing related to a potential agreement with the District.

An updated conflict of interest questionnaire must be filed no later than September 1 of each year in which the person; (1) has begun contract discussions or negotiations with the District; or (2) submits to the District an application, response to a request for proposals or bides, correspondence or another writing related to a potential agreement with the District; and (3) the seventh business day after the date of an event that would make a statement in the questionnaire incomplete or inaccurate. The updated questionnaire is not required if the person has filed an updated questionnaire on or after June 1, but before September 1 of that year.

It is the vendor's responsibility to interpret the requirements of Chapter 176 of the Local Government Code.
