Conflict of Interest

Board of Trustees
Members of the Harris Health System Board of Trustees must comply with Texas Local Government Code, Chapters 171 and 176, Texas Government Code, Chapter 573, and Harris Health policy regarding conflict of interest and nepotism.

Board members are required to file an affidavit disclosing certain substantial interests in business entities or real property and in most cases, abstain from participation in matters relating to those interests. Board members are also required to disclose certain business relationships with actual or potential vendors of Harris Health. If a board member becomes aware of facts that require the member to file a Conflicts Disclosure Statement per Chapter 176, Texas Local Government Code, the board member will complete the form, which will be posted and maintained on this Web site during the course of the member’s service to Harris Health for as long as the conflict exists.   

Board of Trustees' Conflicts Disclosure Statements

Employees, Vendors, and Volunteers
Harris Health expects employees, volunteers and vendors to exercise attention, good judgment and prudence in their relationships, obligations and financial interests so that they do not conflict with the interests of Harris Health or the performance of their duties. Harris Health's Conflict of Interest Policy provides guidelines for these individuals for conducting public business free from the influence of personal and private interests.

Non-Harris Health Medical Staff
Medical staff members are required to adhere to the Conflict of Interest policies of their respective affiliated organizations. Harris Health’s Office of Corporate Compliance works with the Compliance Offices of its affiliated organizations when conflicts arise.
