How well do you understand and manage conflicts of interest? The final chapter of EquiP's eight-part 'Pillars of Local Government' series, Rules and Regulations (conflicts of interest) is now available on-demand at EquiPTV. 

All local authorities need to understand conflicts of interest, the rules that apply, and how to manage them. There are two types of conflicts of interest: financial and non-financial conflicts. In this webinar, we aim to assist elected members and officers to understand and appropriately manage financial and non-financial conflicts of interests and communicate effectively with us when conflict issues arise.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this webinar participants will be able to:

  • define the Auditor-General’s role in relation to conflicts of interest;
  • examine the rules under the Local Authorities (Members’ Interests) Act for financial conflicts;
  • differentiate between, and manage both financial and non-financial conflicts of interest;
  • reference the Office of the Auditor-General guidance documents; and
  • describe when and how to communicate with the OAG when conflict issues arise.
