Conflict of Interest Disclosure

Policy on Organizational Conflicts of Interest

The District 10 Como Community Council relies on a variety of institutional (public, private, and non-profit) and individual funding sources to fund its operations. This funding takes the form of grants, donations, sponsorships, and contracts for services. In order to protect the integrity of the Council and its funders, District 10 will maintain an up-to-date registry of funders providing more than $500 in annual funding on its website, www.district10comopark.org, containing the name of the funder, and the form and level of funding provided, as well as date of donation/term of grant/contract.

Potential or perceived conflicts of interest may arise when funders have matters of interest pending before the Council or its committees. On such occasions, the chair will ensure that information from the funding registry is shared with the community prior to discussion of the matter at hand. Meeting minutes shall reflect the disclosure. Where appropriate, committee recommendations and
board actions should identify potential or perceived conflicts of interest inherent in the decision, the steps taken to disclose them, and any steps deemed necessary to manage them.
