Conflict of Interest Questionnaire

Notice to Vendors: Conflict of Interest Questionnaire Required by Chapter 176 of the Texas Local Government Code.

Effective January 1, 2006, any person or entity who contracts or seeks to contract with PAISD for the sale or purchase of property, goods, or services as well as agents of such persons, (hereafter referred to as Vendors) are required to file a Conflict of Interest Questionnaire with the District.  Each covered person or entity who seeks to or who contracts with PAISD is responsible for complying with any applicable disclosure requirements.

The Conflict of Interest Questionnaire must be filed:

  • No later than the seventh business day after the date that the Vendor begins contract discussions or negotiations with the government entity, or submits to the entity an application, response to a request for proposal or bid, correspondence, or other writing related to a potential agreement with the entity.
 
  • The Vendor also shall file an updated questionnaire no later than September 1 of each year in which a covered transaction is pending, and the seventh business day after the date of an event that would make a statement in the questionnaire incomplete or inaccurate.
 

Note:  A Vendor is not required to file an updated questionnaire if the person had filed an updated statement on or after June 1, but before September 1 of the year.

The Conflict of Interest Questionnaire may be downloaded from the Texas Ethics Commission’s website.
