Financial  Disclosure

Section 112 of the Florida Statutes requires that all elected public officials and appointed board members of public organizations are required to comply with financial interest disclosure to the Florida Commission on Ethics.  Certain state and local employees are also subject to the disclosure filing requirement because of the position they hold or their purchasing authority.  At Florida Gulf Coast University, disclosure of financial interests applies to:

-Business managers and purchasing agents having the power to make any purchase exceeding $20,000

-A full-time employee who serves as counsel or assistant counsel to any state agency

-Finance and accounting directors

-Personnel officers

-Grant coordinators

New Hires

Section 112.3145(2)(b) requires that the first financial disclosure statement be filed within 30 days of appointment or employment.   This requirement is met by filing the Statement of Financial Interests (Form 1). 

Annual Reporting

After the initial filing, designated employees are required to file the Statement of Financial Interests  (Form 1) by July 1 of each year.

Separation

Upon separation of employment or end of appointment, a Final Statement of Financial Interests (Form 1F) must be filed within 60 days after leaving, unless taking another position that also requires financial disclosure.

Penalties

Individuals who fail to file a Statement of Financial Interests as required will be assessed a fine of $25 per day, up to a maximum of $1,500.
