Process flowchart: NRC Conflict of Interest and post-employment policy
Long description of Process Flowchart: NRC Conflict of Interest and Post-Employment Policy (COI and PE)
This flowchart illustrates the conflict of interest declaration and review process for potential, current and former NRC employees.
Potential employees are to review the COI and PE policy, as referenced in their letter of offer. All new and potential IRAP employees are to submit a conflict of interest form.
Current employees follow the process described below when they experience a change in their situation, receive a COI email reminder from the Secretary General and/or during their annual review process (Commitment to Excellence) CTE.
Through self-assessment they determine whether there is a RAP (Real, Apparent or Potential conflict of interest). There is an option to consult the Secretary General’s Office (SGO).
If there is no RAP then no further action is required. If there is a RAP, employees inform their CTE supervisor and reviewing officer and make a declaration. A declaration is generally done by submitting a completed conflict of interest form.
SGO conducts a risk assessment and determines whether or not adequate information was provided for a response. SGO may need to consult with stakeholders. SGO then sends a COI response to the employee with a copy to CTE supervisor and reviewing officer.
Finally, the employee acknowledges receipt and the file is closed.
For former employees and those preparing to leave NRC, they are to review their obligation to not divulge confidential NRC information.
If they were in the MG, IRAP-ITA or CRL category they need to determine whether a waiver or reduction of limitation period is required. If not, no further action is necessary. If a waiver is required then the individual makes a declaration.
SGO proceeds to conduct a risk assessment as previously described.
Once SGO has sent its response the employee or former employee acknowledges receipt and the file is closed.
Any questions or comments can be directed to the NRC Secretary General's Office.
