Annual Statement of Economic Interest Process
The Illinois Governmental Ethics Act requires University of Illinois employees who meet certain criteria to file a Statement of Economic Interests with the Office of the Secretary of State by May 1st of each year. Statements must be returned to the University Ethics and Compliance Office in advance of the May 1st deadline. The Ethics Officer will then review and forward all University Statements received to the Office of the Secretary of State by the stated deadline. In 2015, a Supplemental form must also be filed. For additional information regarding these forms access the link above.
Strict penalties, including fines and forfeiture of the position of employment, may be imposed on employees who are required to comply with this Act and file late or fail to file a Statement of Economic Interests.
