Conflicts of Interest, Commitment, & Outside Activities
- The policy is intended to protect the credibility and reputation of the U.T. System Administration of UTEP and their employees, by providing a framework to address conflicts of interest, conflicts of commitment, and outside activities.
- The policy applies to all UTEP, employees including Executive Officers, Employees involved in Procurement Activities, and employees involved in contract management.

- Activities on behalf of outside entities or individuals must not interfere with a UTEP employee's fulfillment of his/her duties and responsibilities to UTEP. Such conflicts of commitment may arise regardless of the location of these activities, the type of outside entity, or the level of compensation.
- Non-Compliance with this policy may subject one to discipline in accordance with applicable procedures up to and including termination of employment.
- Conflict of Interest is generally an issue of financial or personal gain.
