Conflicts of Interest - Contracts
A state officer, employee, or special state appointee may not knowingly have a financial interest in a contract made by an agency. The term financial interest is defined in IC 4-2-6-1. This prohibition, however, does not apply to an officer, employee, or special state appointee who (1) does not participate in or have contracting responsibility for any of the activities of the contracting agency and (2) meets the criteria in IC 4-2-6-10.5(b)(2) and (c)(1)-(5). One criterion is that the officer, employee, or special state appointee must file a written statement with the Inspector General before the officer, employee, or special state appointee executes the contract with the state agency.
Care should be taken to review IC 4-2-6-10.5 in its entirety to ensure compliance with all criteria set forth in the statute.
