1.4 Local Workforce Development Boards (Local WDBs)



1.4.12 Conflict of Interest 1

Effective date: July 1, 2017

WIOA directs that a member of a local WDB, or a member of a standing committee, may not:

  • vote on a matter under consideration by the local board
    • regarding the provision of services by the member (or by an entity that the member represents); or
    • that would provide direct financial benefit to the member or the immediate family of the member.
  • engage in any other activity determined by the Governor to constitute a conflict of interest as specified in the State plan.

Each representative serving on the local WDB is required to have a current, signed Conflict of Interest form on record with the Board and with the State. Conflict of Interest forms shall be renewed at the beginning of each Biennial WDB Recertification Process, and shall be provided to the State at that time. For any individual joining the board between recertification periods, a signed Conflict of Interest form must be submitted to the WDB's assigned Local Program Liaison within 20 business days of the member's appointment.
