If you're a manager
Make sure and check that everyone on your team understands and follows all local rules and regulations regarding the direct employment of anyone from the governments we work with or from clients or competitors.
It’s the same for conflicts of interest. Everyone needs to understand where potential conflicts can arise and declare them if they think they may exist.
Your job is to check they do and manage and monitor any conflicts that are declare.
It’s also important that you make sure any knowledge an individual brings to a project or bid that you are involved in does not create an unfair advantage.
