  2. Any conflict of interest involving a direct or indirect relationship with a supplier, whether financial or familial, is to be disclosed by division staff to the secretary treasurer for advice on whether or not board approval is required, before any related division purchase of goods or services is to proceed.
  3. Division staff should not purchase goods or services for personal use, or benefit through or in the name of the board or the division, without prior disclosure to the secretary treasurer who will determine whether or not board approval is required.
