Conflict of Interest

CONFLICT OF INTEREST STATEMENT

A conflict of interest exists in any situation where a trustee or staff member of the Livonia Public Library (LPL) has been empowered to make decisions on behalf of LPL and who, as a result of that power, can potentially benefit personally, directly or indirectly, from an entity or person conducting business with LPL. Examples of potential conflicts of interest include, but are not limited to:

  1. A LPL trustee or staff member provides goods or services to LPL for consideration.

  1. A friend or relative of an LPL trustee or staff member provides goods or services to LPL for consideration.

  1. A vendor or business acquaintance with whom a LPL trustee or staff member has an outside business relationship provides goods or services to LPL for consideration.

  1. A LPL trustee or staff member receives a referral fee or preferential discount, gift, or other valuable consideration from a vendor, paid promoter, fund raising event sponsor, or any other outside party, for referring LPL business to such party.

All potential conflicts of interest, no matter how small or insignificant, are to be reported to the Library Director (in the case of staff) or to the LPL Board (in the case of Board members) prior to engaging in a conflict of interest action. The Director or Board President will then make a decision as to whether the relationship is an appropriate one for LPL. The representation set forth below is to be signed by each Board member and staff.

I understand the concept of a conflict of interest and represent that I have not been party to a conflict of interest action that has not been previously disclosed. I also agree to report any potential future conflicts of interest to LPL prior to engaging in any conflict of interest action.
