Conflict of Interest Disclosure
Chapter 176 of the Texas Local Government Code requires the filing of conflict of interest questionnaires by certain individuals, organizations, and companies that do business with COAERS.
The questionnaires require disclosures describing certain family, business, employment, and gift giving relationships, if any, the filers may have with certain COAERS employees, certain COAERS consultants, the Board of Trustees and the Executive Director.
The law applies to:
- businesses, organizations, and individuals who contract with the City of Austin Employees' Retirement System,
- businesses, organizations, and individuals who seek to contract with the City of Austin Employees’ Retirement System, (regardless of whether a bidder is awarded the contract), and
- agents who, when dealing with the City of Austin Employees’ Retirement System, represent a business or individual that contracts or seeks to contract with the City of Austin Employees’ Retirement System.
