SESSION TITLE: "Ethics in Public Contracting:  Can I really do that!  Should I really do that?!" (1.5 hrs)  
 HUD requires that housing agencies maintain a "written code of standards of conduct governing the performance of their employees engaged in the award and administration of contracts."  This session will cover in detail those "written code of standards" as detailed by HUD within Chapter 11 of the HUD Procurement Handbook.  These standards apply equally to housing agency employees, members of the Board, and contractors retained by the housing agency.
