Unclassified employees, their families, or organizations in which they have a financial interest may not enter into contracts or leases derived from state funding if the employee is in a position to influence the awarding of the contract. This rule applies only to a contract or lease involving payments of more than $3,000 within a 12-month period. An exception to this rule occurs when the employee discloses the potential conflict, when the employee is not in a position to influence the award of the contract, and when the employee’s dean, director, or appropriate administrator approves the contract. Deans and directors may approve such contracts if they determine that the contract will not substantially conflict with the employee’s official duties.
