Public Works Ethics and Conflicts

September 30

Avoid the professional embarrassment and financial loss associated with breach of ethical obligations regarding a public project.

Professionals that provide services to governmental entities are at financial risk for violating ethical and conflict rules and codes in connection with public works projects. In fact, criminal sanctions can be imposed for violation of applicable statues and codes establishing those standards. To avoid the professional embarrassment and financial loss associated with breach of ethical obligations regarding a public project, the professional must know at least generally when they are at risk of violating an ethical rule. This topic will provide an overview of the purpose and source of ethical standards to provide the professional an understanding of the basis for the various regulations of ethics and conflicts, and include review of specific applicable professional standards and codes that apply to professionals engaged in public works project. Finally, the material will offer a discussion of governing statutes and court decisions in order to enable the professional to recognize when they are potentially violating an ethical rule that can lead to loss of the project and disgorgement.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to review the purpose of ethical standards for public projects.
  • You will be able to explain the sources of ethical standards.
  • You will be able to discuss regulation of conflicts with public projects.
