We implement the Code of Ethics(PDF, 328KB) advising the UG on ethics policy and ensuring compliance with Code provisions through regular review of governmental activities. Meeting once a month in an open session. All elected officials, officials, and employees of the UG are required to attend a basic ethics education training session within ninety days of their affiliation, and to further attend a continuing ethics training session every (3) years thereafter.

The Code of Ethics serves as the basic rules and ethical principles for the day-to-day operations of the UG. For more information, see the Political Memorandum(PDF, 170KB)
