    Is being a resource advisor a conflict of interest with personnel in the contracting field?


    Answer

    If the contracting specialist is a contractor, this would not be allowable as the resource advisor who certifies funds (color of money, year, and amount) is considered Inherently governmental.
     
    If the contracting specialist is a government employee and certifies funds (color of money, year, and amount) they would need the appropriate certification and training to do so.
     
    l no not see where being a contracting specialist  having  a collateral duty as a resource advisor is considered a conflict of interest.

    I recommend that you contact your local ethics attorney for additional information and their legal opinion in writing.
