    County Officials

    Legal Guidance

    "I know as an elected official that I'm supposed to file a conflicts disclosure statement bout my business relationship with a vendor. Does the vendor also need to file a disclosure statement?"

    Is a vendor required to file a conflicts of interest disclosure statement?

    Yes. The person who contracts or seeks to contract with the county must also file a completed questionnaire with the county clerk disclosing the person’s affiliation or business relationship with each member of the commissioners court. A corporation, partnership or other corporate entity is a "person" subject to Local Government Code Chapter 176. For more information, please see our publication Conflicts of Interest.
