Vendor Alerts
Vendor Alert House Bill

On May 23, 2005, the Texas Senate passed House Bill No. 914, adding Chapter 176 to the Local Government Code, and imposing new disclosure and reporting obligations on vendors and potential vendors to local government entities beginning on January 1, 2006. This includes School Districts.

Failure to abide by these new statutory requirements can result in possible criminal penalties.

Navarro Independent School District is requiring you to complete the CONFLICT OF INTEREST QUESTIONNAIRE (FORM CIQ) prepared by the Texas Ethics Commission, at the direction of the legislature and strongly recommends you become familiar with House Bill 914.

Navarro Independent School District will not provide any further interpretation or information regarding these new requirements.

Please complete the CONFLICT OF INTEREST QUESTIONNAIRE and return it to:

Local government officers must file a disclosure statement with the district if:
  • A gift valued at $250 or more is accepted. This does not include food, lodging, transportation, or entertainment accepted as a guest.
  • A form must be completed if a person is considering contracting with the district and employment or a business relationship exits with the local government officer or a family member of the officer that results in the officer or family member receiving taxable income.
