CIQ Forms

Vendor Conflict of Interest Questionnaires

Effective Jan. 1, 2006, Chapter 176 of the Texas Local Government Code requires that any vendor or person considering doing business with a local government entity complete a disclosure questionnaire regarding the vendor or person’s affiliation or business relationship with a local government officer that might cause a conflict of interest. As defined, “local government officer” would mean the members of the NTTA Board of Directors and the NTTA Executive Director.

The questionnaire (also called Form CIQ), developed by the Texas Ethics Commission, must be filed with the Secretary of the North Texas Tollway Authority not later than the seventh business day after the date the person becomes aware of facts that require the statement to be filed. It is the vendor’s or person’s sole responsibility to submit the questionnaire in accordance with the law. This questionnaire is included as part of bid opportunity documents.​ Failure to comply with the disclosure requirements may result in a Class C misdemeanor offense.
