Conflict of Interest Code
Under the California Political Reform Act (Gov. Code § 81000), designated elected and appointed public officials are required disclose assets and income that may be materially affected by their official actions.
As required by the Act, government agencies must adopt a Conflict of Interest Code to regulate who within their agency is required to file statements of economic interests, and what types of financial interests they must disclose. Disclosure is determined based on the position’s level of decision-making.
City of Davis Conflict of Interest Code (adopted 01/24/17)
Statement of Economic Interest (Form 700)
Certain employees and public officials must disclose their personal financial information on a Statement of Economic Interests Form 700, as designated in the Political Reform Act (Gov. Code § 87200) or the City of Davis Conflict of Interest Code. The intent of the Form 700 is to ensure that decision makers are not using their authority to affect personal financial interests.
The City Clerk’s Office collects and maintains Form 700s, as well as provides public access to them. These forms are filed on an annual basis, and upon assuming or leaving office. The City uses an electronic filing system called eDisclosure for conflict of interest disclosure statements. Access to the public portal to review filed forms, and for individuals to file forms may be found via the links below:

Form 806 - Public Official Appointments
The Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) requires each agency to post Form 806 (pursuant to FPPC Regulation 18705.5). Form 806 reports additional compensation that officials receive when appointing themselves to positions on other boards, commissions or committees of a public agency, special district, and joint power agency/authorities.
Campaign Disclosure Statements
The Political Reform Act (Gov. Code § 84100) requires the filing of Campaign Disclosure Statements by any persons or combination of persons who will be raising or spending money toward local elections, including but not limited to local candidates for elective office, or those supporting or opposing local candidates or ballot measures. Such persons may be required to file the following forms:
- Form 501 Candidate Intention Statement: A Form 501 must be filed prior to a candidate raising or spending any money, including the candidate’s personal funds.
- Form 410 Statement of Organization: Any person or combination of persons who directly or indirectly receives contributions or makes expenditures of $250 or more in a calendar year toward local elections qualifies as a committee in the City of Davis and must file this form.
- Form 460 Consolidated Campaign Disclosure Form: This form must be completed to account for money raised or spent during designated filing periods after a campaign committee has been created. Specific filing deadlines apply.
Additional forms may be required. Please visit the FPPC website for additional forms and manuals. Additional campaign committee formation and disclosure requirements are also outlined in Chapter 12 (Elections) of the Davis Municipal Code.
The City has implemented an electronic filing system called eCampaign to further ensure that receipts and expenditures in city elections are disclosed and made available to the public. Local elected officials, candidates, and committees who are required to file campaign disclosure statements are able to file their forms through this system at no charge.
The eCampaign site provides information about filers who have officially formed candidate, ballot measure and/or general purpose recipient committees (for which the City has received a Form 410 Statement of Organization). Access to the public portal and committee filer portals may be found below:
Public Transparency Portal to View Campaign Committee Filed Forms:
