Mandatory requirements for appointments by nomination and direct appointment
Conflict of Interest
The normal rules in relation to conflict of interest during recruitment, also apply to the nomination and direct appointment process. For more information, see the minimum requirements in the UNSW Recruitment and Selection Procedure.
In particular, if individuals involved in the appointment process, must declare any conflicts of interest (actual, potential or perceived) to their manager and any other people involved in the nomination or direct appointment process, and agree a reasonable management plan. The management plan will vary depending on the level of conflict (for example, stepping out of the process altogether through to practical strategies such as obtaining a higher level of approval for the appointment).
