Financial Disclosure: Identifying and Remediating Conflicts of Interest in the Executive Branch [August 17, 2021] [open pdf - 532KB]
From the Document: "When taking an official action (e.g., making decisions or recommendations), American public servants are expected to put the government's interests ahead of their own. The Ethics in Government Act of 1978 (5 U.S.C. Appendix), as amended, is based upon this principle and requires certain employees to file annual financial disclosure statements. Federal agencies use the disclosed information to identify and remediate real or perceived conflicts of interest, as necessary."
