METRO is committed to openness and transparency. We are also committed to the highest ethical standards in the performance of our services to the community. The public is entitled to assurances that its officials are guided by the public good. To this end, Chapter 176 of the Texas Local Government Code may require the public disclosure of certain information concerning METRO Board members, local government officers and persons doing business or seeking to do business with METRO.
METRO Board members and other local government officers must file a Conflicts Disclosure Statement (FORM CIS) disclosing the business relationship with a vendor that METRO has contracted with or is considering contracting with if the Board member or local government officer (or his or her family member) has certain business relationships with that vendor.
Vendors doing business with METRO or seeking to do business with METRO are required to file a completed questionnaire (FORM CIQ) disclosing the vendor’s affiliations or business relationship with any Board Member or local government officer (or his or her family member).
As required by Chapter 176 of the Texas Local Government Code, disclosure forms are available. Please select a link below to view the form. All forms are in PDF format and therefore require Adobe Acrobat Reader to view/print.
Codes of Ethics
The completed Local Government Officer Conflicts Disclosure Statements and Conflict of Interest Questionnaire should be mailed to:

Completed CIQ & CIS Forms are kept on the Web site for two (2) years. Original documents are maintained in METRO’s Legal Department.
PDF copies will be available on this page after filing. Please note that Chapter 176 of the Texas Local Government Code does not require METRO to disclose any information that is excepted from disclosure by Texas Open Records Act, Chapter 552 of the Texas Government Code.
