    Appendix III. Lake Champlain Basin Program Conflict of Interest Policy

    LAKE CHAMPLAIN BASIN PROGRAM and CHAMPLAIN VALLEY NATIONAL HERITAGE PARTNERSHIP

    Policy and Guidelines on Conflicts of Interest, Revised June, 2017

    The Guidelines below apply to all operations of the Lake Champlain Basin Program (LCBP) and Champlain Valley National Heritage Partnership (CVNHP), including the external review of funding proposals, and to members of the Committees of the LCBP and CVNHP who are involved in reviews or funding decisions. These Guidelines are to be used when developing requests for proposals (RFPs), evaluating proposals, recommending funding awards, and developing budget priorities. Committee members who receive confidential information must take personal responsibility to avoid actual or potential conflicts of interest.

    Introduction
    The purpose of these Guidelines is to ensure that activities, particularly those related to the distribution of funds, are conducted in a fair manner and that there is neither a motivation, nor an appearance of a motivation, for private or personal gain.This document addresses both actual and potential conflicts of interest. An actual conflict of interest could arise when an individual has a direct personal, familial, or financial relationship or connection with any of the activities, applicants, or proposals under review. If this relationship could directly influence a member’s personal or professional benefit or interest, the relationship should not factor into the decision at hand and the individual should not be part of the decision making process.A member has a potential conflict of interest if s/he has a relationship with the activities, applicants or proposals being reviewed that could potentially cause the member’s professional judgement or actions to be impaired, or could influence their objectivity or impartiality. For example, a Committee member who is employed by an entity within an organization (e.g., Department X within Agency Z) and involved in a decision regarding a different entity within the same organization (e.g. Department Y within Agency Z) could be biased in favor of the sister entity.For the purposes of LCBP and CVNHP committee members, a conflict of interest occurs when an LCBP or CVNHP Committee or subcommittee member
    • stands to receive a direct financial benefit from a matter under discussion,
    • has a personal or familial interest that may be substantially affected by a matter under discussion by the committee,
    • has any other personal or professional interest or obligation that may affect the member’s judgment regarding a matter under discussion, or
    • may benefit personally or privately from the outcome of a decision or discussion.

    Guidelines

    1. All LCBP and CVNHP Committee members (members) are responsible for adhering to this Policy and Guidelines on Conflicts of Interest, and are encouraged to consult with the LCBP and CVNHP Director and the general procurement standards and competition requirements outlined in the Uniform Grant Guidance at 2 CFR 200.318 – General Procurement Standards and 2 CFR 200.319 Competition. If the ability of a committee member to be impartial in a decision is impaired, this individual has a conflict of interest and must discuss this conflict with the LCBP and CVNHP Director.

    2. Members of LCBP and CVNHP Advisory Committees. Individuals who contribute to the development of an RFP shall not respond to that same request in any capacity, including the provision of letters of support or recommendation to any entity that submits or is included in a proposal. Employees from organizational entities that employ staff who assist in the development or drafting of specifications, requirements, statements of work, or invitations for bids or requests for LCBP or CVNHP proposals must be excluded from competing for such procurements. See 2 CFR 200.319 Competition.Individuals shall not participate in any review of an LCBP-funded task undertaken by their employer or from the same organizational entity, specifically a:
    • Department within an Agency (Vermont State Government),
    • Ministry (Quebec Government),
    • Division within a Department (New York State Government),
    • Department within a Municipal or County Government,
    • Academic department within a College or University,
    • Institution, such as a Conservation District or a formal Coalition, or
    • Organization, such as a Commission, Non-profit or For-profit Corporation,that has submitted a proposal which is under consideration. Recusal from participation requires absence from the discussion; presence is considered participation.

    3. Members of the Lake Champlain Steering Committee and Executive Committee. Lake Champlain Steering Committee and Executive Committee members who represent government entities may be responsible for decisions that may affect their government organization; the knowledge they share is important to the successful outcome of program activities and as such these members will not be required to recuse themselves from the decision-making process. These members must disclose the nature of their relationship to the decision with other committee members and the LCBP and CVNHP Director as described in item #4 below. However, any Lake Champlain Steering Committee member who may stand to benefit or gain personally or privately from the outcome of a decision will have a legal conflict of interest and will be recused from participation in that decision. All Steering Committee members who are employed by for-profit private entities (e.g., engineering or consulting firm) will be recused from discussion of budget items that may affect their organization, regardless of whether they stand to benefit or gain personally from the outcome of the decision.

    4. Any member of LCBP Advisory Committees or subcommittees, or a non-governmental employee who is a member of the Lake Champlain Steering Committee, will be recused from the relevant discussion and decision if they have a conflict of interest. In addition, members must disclose a potential conflict of interest as soon as circumstances arise for it to become apparent. The individual should contact the LCBP and CVNHP Director to discuss the issue; the Director may then choose to discuss the matter with the Chairs of the Steering Committee and Executive Committee. All Committee members who are employed within an organization, but not necessarily within the same entity of that organization where employment might constitute a potential or actual conflict of interest, must disclose this conflict of interest in writing to the LCBP and CVNHP Director, and convey this conflict to the committee with which they are working. LCBP and CVNHP staff will be responsible for maintaining all conflict of interest disclosures for each decision process and ensuring that the Steering or Executive Committee (whichever is tasked with the decision in the related process) is made aware of any disclosures associated with that process. The individual may be asked to recuse him or herself from the process if necessary, including for potential conflicts of interest. The Lake Champlain Steering Committee may also determine, by simple majority vote by members present, that a conflict of interest has occurred, and take appropriate steps to ensure that the issue is resolved appropriately.

    5. Any Committee member whose organizational entity has submitted a workplan, report or other contractual deliverable to that Committee for review may participate in the discussion of the report, but shall abstain from voting on decisions related to the report.

    6. All LCBP Committee members and external peer reviewers must treat all materials related to an RFP, proposal for LCBP funding, technical work plan review, or grant review process as strictly confidential to the extent allowed by law. Violation of that confidentiality constitutes a conflict of interest if it potentially gives an unfair advantage to any party or releases information pertaining to or the identities of applicants or confidential peer reviewers.

    7. Statute of Limitations on Conflicts of Interest from previous places of employment. Members of the Lake Champlain Steering Committee or LCBP advisory committees and subcommittees will have a conflict of interest if they participate in a decision that affects their former employer within one year of the member’s termination from that place of employment. If termination of employment occurred more than one-year prior, the committee member may choose to recuse him/herself if s/he feels his/her prior employment would cause them to be biased.

    8. Conflict of Interest disclosure form. This guidance document should be reviewed by each LCBP Committee and subcommittee member annually. The disclosure form (below) should be signed by each individual who chooses to participate in a decision process for which they may have a potential conflict of interest.

    Potential Conflict of Interest Disclosure (to be submitted on each occasion for which the member has a conflict of interest):

    I, _________________________________ have a potential conflict of interest in the following decision process: [describe decision]. The potential conflict of interest is: [describe the situation]. I feel that I should participate in the discussion of this matter because [describe the added benefit that the member will provide] and will not be influenced or biased by this potential conflict of interest. I have discussed this issue with the LCBP and CVNHP Director and the Chair of my LCBP Committee.
