DBI’S PROPOSED STATEMENT OF INCOMPATIBLE ACTIVITIES
SEPTEMBER 11, 2006
With the revised Statement of Incompatible Activities I’m submitting tonight, we’re proposing explicit and strict rules designed to eliminate potential conflict of interest situations for our employees – beyond what existing local and state laws already provide. We’re confident these rules balance tougher standards with fairness, and underscore our determination to address effectively any past practices that may have been ethically questionable. The overwhelming majority of employees at DBI earn the public’s trust every day by delivering high quality professional life-safety services to a wide range of San Franciscans. I’m certain these stricter rules will eliminate opportunities for misunderstanding and potential errors, and I look forward to this Commission’s adoption of these proposed new rules.
