Conflict of interest vendors
Financial Conflicts of Interest
Arizona State law prohibits the sale of equipment, material, supplies or services by a public officer or employee to such public agency, unless the transaction has been made through a competitive public bid (A.R.S. § 38-503). These policies are intended to limit the possibility of personal influence a member might have in their role as a public employee, thus maintaining the University’s integrity as a public institution. Below is a list of vendors who have disclosed conflicts with the university.
Suppliers listed on this document represent substantial or restricted conflicts; those with a restricted interest are not authorized for the participation in sales or contracts with the University, unless the contact has been made through a public competitive bid. Vendors with a substantial conflict may partake in the sale of equipment, material, supplies or services to the University; however, the department must ensure the employee with the conflict refrain from participating in the transaction.
Departments that require use of one of the businesses/individuals on the List of Suppliers with Conflicts of Interest or have any questions please contact Contracting and Purchasing Services by phone at 928-523-4557 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who Should Disclose?
Any employee of full-time, part-time or temporary status or a student employee who has or whose relative has a substantial interest in the contract, sale, purchase or service to the University is required to report the conflict within 15 days of when circumstances change or 30 days upon new employment, refer to Purchasing Policy 102.
Disclosures can be made by completing NAU’s Conduct, Ethics, Reporting and Transparency (CERT) program.
