    What are Public Contracts?

    State codes that prohibit public officials and public staff from making public contracts during which they exhibit a monetary interest is notoriously obscure, broad, and often malleable. Many states create laws for non-appointed and appointed officials discouraging all staff and representatives from having a vested interest in any contract created by them in their official capability. However, state courts and politics have taken these terms loosely, creating hazardous straightforward violations to certain statutes sometimes while not even knowing it.

    First, making a public contract does not simply mean proposing or voting on items or articles. Through discovery, a public official or public worker that participates in discussions, planning, or negotiations in a contract is could potentially be found to be involved in the process of its creation.

    Violations will have vital impacts on a contract, as a contract entered into by a part during which one or additional public officers features a monetary interest can void the contract altogether and allow the general public the agency to hunt any funds paid.
