Ethics and Sunshine Training

The City Attorney’s Office is among the agencies that offer trainings for public officials and employees to keep them informed about their responsibilities to conduct the public’s business with transparency and ethical integrity. Although these resources are primarily created for city leaders and workers, all San Franciscans can benefit from the information they provide about local government’s duty to function ethically and transparently on behalf of the people it serves.

Requirements for City Officers

City officials and department heads who are required to file annual Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700) with the Ethics Commission under San Francisco Campaign & Governmental Conduct Code Section 3.1-103(a)(1) and (b)(1) must annually complete the Ethics training and the Sunshine Ordinance training. The training and filing requirements must be completed online using the Ethics Commission’s e-filing system. For more information about the training requirements, visit the Ethics Commission’s website.
