Ethics Training for Special Government Employees

 Welcome to CDCís Ethics Training for Special Government Employees (SGEs) appointed to serve on Federal advisory committees. On this website we have provided links to documents that explain the laws and regulations that govern your participation as a Department of Health and Human Services Special Government Employee. We have included general information on the Executive Branch Standards of Conduct, the conflict of interest statutes, the supplemental standards of conduct that apply to the Department of Health and Human Service, as well as various other ethics rules, regulations and policies. We have organized these training materials for you to access with a click of the mouse. This compilation of information serves as your Annual Ethics Training, as required by the U.S. Office of Government Ethics.

To ensure that every citizen has complete confidence in the integrity of the Federal Government and its advisory committees, each Special Government Employee shall respect and adhere to the principles of ethical conduct. Each special government employee appointed to serve on a CDC Federal advisory committee assumes a responsibility to the United States and its citizens to place loyalty to the Constitution, laws, and ethical principles above private gain. The training materials designated for this yearís annual training will provide you with clear standards and guidelines to assist you in meeting your responsibility as an SGE.

Upon completing a review of the training materials, SGEs are requested to verify that you have received and reviewed the training materials. For your convenience, you may:
