Two executive directives issued by the Mayor's office directly affect governmental ethics. In ED 2005-1, the Mayor outlined a series of steps that general managers, departmental directors and administrators, and board and commission members are asked to take in maintaining and enhancing public confidence in City government.
In ED 2006-7, the Mayor reinforced and expanded the scope of ED 2005-1. This directive calls for an appointment of a high-level ethics liaison from each department, instructs each department to assess and update its conflict of interests code, and requires all City officials to complete a two-hour ethics training course every two years.
