Disclosure of Outside Activities

This section contains information regarding disclosure of outside activities for UF employees.

Policy

University of Florida faculty and staff members may engage in outside activities and hold financial interests as long as it does not interfere or creates a conflict of interest with the obligations and responsibilities of the primary employment.

Form 

Employee’s Responsibility

When engaging in outside activities, the employee is expected to report the situation to their supervisor for discussion and, if required, to provide a report disclosing the information prior to engaging in the activity or obtaining the financial interest.
In addition to completing the statement regarding activities and financial interests annually through effort reporting or during the performance appraisal period, an annual disclosure should be submitted at the beginning of each academic year or other annual appointment for each existing outside activity or financial interest.

A new disclosure should be submitted if there is a significant change in an activity or financial interest (nature, extent, funding, etc.) or before a new outside activity or financial interest is undertaken. These reporting provisions apply to activities performed or interests held while an employee is in pay status, or is on a compensated leave, including a professional development leave, but do not apply to activities performed wholly during a period in which the employee has no appointment with the University. The employee should still be aware of and deal with the conflict of interest considerations that may arise from the latter activities.
