Conflict of Interest Code

The Political Reform Act, Government Code section 81000 et seq., requires local government agencies to adopt and promulgate conflict of interest codes. The Fair Political Practices Commis­sion (FPPC) has adopted regulations (2 Cal. Code Regs., § 18730), which contain the terms of a standard conflict of interest code, which may be amended by the FPPC to conform to amendments in the Political Reform Act after public notice and hearings. The County Board of Supervisors is the code reviewing body for agencies located in Ventura County. Please see the “Current Codes” tab to view codes approved by the Board of Supervisors. 

Current Conflict of Interest Codes

Conflict of Interest Codes approved by the Board of Supervisors are available below in alphabetical order.

To ensure conflict of interest codes remain current and accurate, each local agency is required to review its code at least every even-numbered year. Each agency will receive a Biennial Notice as a reminder of this obligation. A copy of the latest Biennial Notice is linked below.
