Conflict of Interest Disclosure Statement Form

  1. Madison County Conflict of Interest Disclosure Statement Form

The Madison County Compliance Policy for Conflict of Interest includes a provision setting forth the standards of conduct expected and required of its Employees (not covered by the County's Code of Ethics) and Class A Contractors (independent contractors that provide direct health and medical services) to disclose all interest which could result in a conflict.

    Please be assured that the disclosure requirements are intended to provide the Board and management with a systematic and ongoing method of disclosing and ethically resolving potential conflicts of interest. Although it is impossible to list every circumstance giving rise to a possible conflict of interest, the following will serve as a guide to the types of activities that might cause conflicts that should be fully reported.
