Conflict of Interest Update

Both Stanford University and the DOE impose requirements on SLAC employees related to avoiding even the appearance of a conflict of interest. Conflicts of interest occur when employees’ outside activities could influence their professional conduct, including allocation of time and energies, due to considerations of personal gain (financial or otherwise).

Please familiarize yourself with University Administrative Guide Memo 15.2 (http://adminguide.stanford.edu/15_2.pdf). All such work must be performed during your free time and may not be done using SLAC/DOE resources or property. If necessary, use vacation or leave without pay; do not do outside work on SLAC time.

The work may not interfere with your normal duties at SLAC, and the performance of your duties at SLAC must not involve you in any way with the potential outside employer.
Finally, you may not participate as a consultant to a company on the preparation of a bid, offer, or unsolicited proposal for SLAC.

If you have any questions concerning this statement of policy or its interpretation, please contact the University Counsel for SLAC, Rachel Claus (ext. 4343), for explanation and advice.
