Declaring a Conflict of Interest – All staff

Staff who find themselves in a position of actual or potentially a perceived conflict of interest are required to register a declaration of a conflict of interest by completing the Declaration of Conflict of Interest form. This will be forwarded to the People, Talent and Culture Unit who will maintain the record confidentially.

All disclosures will be managed with consideration for your privacy as our employee and subject to the University of South Australia (UniSA)’s policies and the law. Disclosures will only be shared in accordance with the requirements of the Management of Conflict of Interest Policy. The UniSA’s requirement for confidentiality relating to matters of a personal nature will apply.

Failure to disclose or avoid a conflict of interest

Failure to disclose or avoid a conflict of interest is a breach of this policy and a potential breach of the code and could result in disciplinary action for misconduct/serious misconduct in line with the provisions of the current UniSA Enterprise Agreement.

Any reasonable suspicion of corruption, or serious or systemic misconduct or maladministration resulting from failure to disclose, address or manage conflicts of interest will be reported to the Office of Public Integrity.
