Conflict of Interest

1) the date the person begins discussions or negotiations to enter into a contract, including submission of a bid or proposal, or

2) the date the person becomes aware of facts that require the statement to be filed. The Conflict of Interest Questionnaire (Form CIQ) is available from the Texas Ethics Commision at http://www.ethics.state.tx.us/whatsnew/conflict_forms.htm.
