§ 560. General Provisions.
The Political Reform Act (Government Code sections 81000, et seq.) requires state and local government agencies to adopt and promulgate conflict-of-interest codes. The Fair Political Practices Commission has adopted a regulation (2 Cal. Code of Regs. Sec. 18730) that contains the terms of a standard conflict-of-interest code, which can be incorporated by reference in an agency's code. After public notice and hearing, the standard code may be amended by the Fair Political Practices Commission to conform to amendments in the Political Reform Act. Therefore, the terms of 2 California Code of Regulations Section 18730 and any amendments to it duly adopted by the Fair Political Practices Commission are hereby incorporated by reference. This regulation and the attached Appendices, designating positions and establishing disclosure categories, shall constitute the conflict-of-interest code of the California Public Employees' Retirement System (“CalPERS”).
Designated employees, consultants, board members, designees or alternates, and candidates shall file their statements of economic interests with the CalPERS filing officer, who will make the statements available for public inspection and reproduction. (Gov. Code Sec. 81008.) With respect board members, designees or alternates, candidates, and the chief executive officer, CalPERS shall make and retain copies and forward the originals to the Fair Political Practices Commission. All other statements will be retained by CalPERS. While public officials who manage investments are not required to be listed in this code, those officials are listed at the end of this document for clarity. Unlike the designated positions, these officials' reporting obligations are not limited by reference to a reporting category.

_____________
* Consultants/New Positions shall be included in the list of designated positions and shall disclose pursuant to the broadest disclosure category in the code, subject to the following limitation:
The General Counsel may determine in writing that a particular consultant, although a “designated position,” is hired to perform a range of duties that is limited in scope, and thus, is not required to fully comply with the disclosure requirements in this section. Such written determination shall include a description of the consultant's duties and, based upon that description, a statement of the extent of disclosure requirements. The General Counsel's determination is a public record and shall be retained for public inspection in the same manner and location as this conflict-of-interest code. (Gov. Code Sec. 81008.)
