Ga. Comp. R. & Regs. R. 144-4-.02 - Grant Administration, Generally
(1) Fair and Open Grants Act. The provisions of the Fair and Open Grants Act of 1993 (O.C.G.A. §§ 28-5-120 thru 127) govern the award of grants by the Council.
(2) Code of Ethics and Conflict of Interest.
(a) Members of the Council shall adhere to the code of ethics for board members established in O.C.G.A. § 45-10-3 which are enforced as provided in O.C.G.A. § 45-10-4.
(b) No member of the Council, who is associated with a grant applicant as an employee or member of the applicant's governing body, is eligible to vote in the recommendation process. Members should also disclose any other beneficial relationship with a grantee or program which could be affected by the vote. Such a relationship may give rise to a conflict of interest. A member of the Council associated with a grant applicant shall notify the chairperson of the committee or Chairperson of the Council of the potential conflict and the appropriate chairperson shall determine whether or not the member should be excused from voting on the specific grantee's application.
(c) Failure of a member to disclose a conflict of interest under subparagraph (b) will result in the nullification of the vote on the particular grantee's application and may be considered a breach of the code of ethics.
(3) Requests for Grant Assistance. Any request for the Council to support a grant application or act in the capacity of State Administering Agency in submitting a grant application will require twenty business days' advance notice for Council review and recommendation to the Governor.
