All state employees are subject to NYS Ethics requirements enacted to prevent both actual and apparent conflicts of interest between official duties and private interests. Please review the latest newsletter from the Joint Commission on Public Ethics (JCOPE) available at http://www.oneonta.edu/admin/humres/HR/HR_images/Ethics_Fall%20Winter%20Newsletter_Dec.2017l.pdf. It covers the following topics: NYS employees’ relationships with former private sector employers, serving as a reference for a vendor, and charging personal expenses to a State credit card. General Ethics information is available at http://www.oneonta.edu/admin/humres/HR/ETHICS.asp. Specific Ethics information is available at http://www.jcope.ny.gov/. If you have any questions, please contact Gail Feuer, Campus Ethics Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 436-2509.
