Ethics for City Staff, Elected Officials and Board Members

This page provides information and resources on specific ethics rules and requirements found in the Government Ethics Act (GEA) and Conflict of Interest Code.

The Public Ethics Commission is committed to helping Oakland Public Servants make decisions and conduct their work in a manner that upholds the public's trust. While the Government Ethics Act provides a minimum standard for government ethics that all Public Servants must be aware of and comply with, our goal is that Public Servants practice the highest integrity in their service to the City.
