Conflict of Interests

Conflict of Interests (COI) occur when a university employee or a member of his/her immediate family has personal interests, or benefits or suffers from his/her participation in contracts or transactions considered by JMU. No JMU employee shall have personal interests in contracts with JMU, other than that employee’s own contract of employment. See Prohibited Conduct

As a requirement of the State and Local Government Conflict of Interests Act, and the Governor's Executive Order 8, university employees in certain designated positions are obligated to disclose their financial interests in order to prevent inappropriate conflicts between personal economic interests and the official duties.

University employees designated to file disclosure statements include presidents, vice presidents, provosts, deans, and any other persons as designated by the institution including those persons with approval authority over contracts or audits. See How the Act Affects You
