NMSU is committed to maintaining the highest standards of ethics and integrity in all of its academic and administrative operations. Both individual members of the university and entities controlled by the university have a vital need to recognize and deal with conflicts of interest and/or commitment. Therefore, the university requires periodic disclosures of interests related to university responsibilities as described below.
Update your disclosure form as needed year round!
For Those involved in Sponsored Activities…
conflicts arise at the time of proposal submission for research funding, when research gift funding is received, and when an application for protocol is submitted for a clinical study.
For more information on reporting conflicts when involved in Sponsored Activities, please see the Associate Vice President for Research Integrity: Conflict of Interest website.
In addition to the NMSU policies on Ethics and Conflicts of Interest, NMSU has created a Business Ethics Handbook that cross-references all associated policies. When employees complete their Conflict of Interest form, they must acknowledge that they have read and agree to comply with the NMSU Business Ethics Handbook.
For Managers and Administrators
As a New Mexico State University director, manager or administrator it is important to periodically determine if good business practices are being observed within your operating unit. Therefore, the office of Audit Services has made available a Best Practices Review Tool for Managers. Use the tool to voluntarily evaluate and improve various internal controls and business practices in your area.
