Managing conflicts of interest

The Local Land Services Board of Chairs has developed a Conflict of Interest policy and Code of Conduct for Board members and staff in order to demonstrate the highest level of governance.
The policy requires that the Board of Chairs establish a subcommittee to assist with the management of real or perceived conflict of interest involving Board members and staff, that often stem from both living and working in regional communities.
Applications for access to Local Land Services grants, funding, access to services or other interactions with the organisation from Board members or staff that present a real or perceived conflict of interest are assessed in a consistent and transparent manner , through a central, arms-length process.
