When is a Memorandum of Understandings (MOU) needed?

When is a Conflict of Interest?

  • All NTW Steering Committee and subcommittee members and any individual working on NTW projects are expected to conduct themselves and the work of The Northern Third Ward Neighborhood Implementation Project in a manner that reflects the highest standards of ethical conduct, and in accordance with all federal, state, and local laws and regulations. This includes avoiding real, potential, and perceived conflicts of interest. A “conflict of interest” occurs when an individual’s personal or private interest could potentially interfere or conflict with the interests of The Northern Third Ward Neighborhood Implementation Project. All NTW staff and volunteers are to avoid such conflicts of interest.​

In addition, project consultants and contractors are required to disclose familial ties or relationships, within three degrees of consanguinity, with any Steering Committee member or employee.

  • All NTW Steering Committee members, subcommittee members, and Project leads must complete and submit a signed copy of the Conflict of Interest form. Failure to do so will result in removal from the project.
