Policies and Governance of PRIM&R Activities
Every PRIM&R Board member, PRIM&R committee member, and employee adheres to a Conflict of Interest Policy. This policy is designed to avoid the appearance or actuality of private benefit to individuals who are in a position of authority within the organization including these individuals. The conflict of interest policy establishes standards and procedures that will ensure the propriety and integrity of PRIM&R's activities and programs.
A conflict of interest occurs where individuals’ obligations to further the organization’s mission is at odds with their own financial interests. For example, a conflict of interest would occur where a director or officer votes on a contract between the organization and a business that is owned in whole or in part by the officer or director.
PRIM&R's conflict of interest policy is intended to help ensure that when actual or potential conflicts of interest arise, the organization has a process in place under which the affected individual will advise the governing body about all the relevant facts concerning the situation. This policy also establishes procedures under which individuals who have a conflict of interest will be excused from voting on or participating in such matters.
If you are concerned that any employee or officer of PRIM&R is engaged in an activity where a conflict of interest may exist, please notify PRIM&R by submitting a written statement, via email, that describes the circumstances relevant to the claim. The claim will be assessed in accordance with PRIM&R's conflict of interest policy and procedure. Thank you.
