STATEMENT OF ECONOMIC INTEREST (Form 700)
WHY FILE A FORM 700:
The Political Reform Act prohibits a public official or employee from using his or her position to influence a government decision in which he or she has a financial interest. Government Code section 87300 requires local government agencies to adopt and promulgate a Conflict of Interest Code identifying officials and employees required to file statements of economic interest based on the positions they hold. A local government agency, as defined by Government Code section 82041, includes the County of Riverside.
Specified Officials per your Conflict of Interest Code must file their Form 700 with the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors. All other staff required to file per your Conflict of Interest Code must be date-stamped and maintained by the department or agency.
The following County Elected and Appointed Officers, identified in California Government Code Section 87200, file Statements of Economic Interests (Form 700’s) directly with the office of the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors:
- Board of Supervisors: Kevin Jeffries, Karen Spiegel, Chuck Washington, V. Manual Perez, Yxstian Gutierrez
- Chief Executive Officer: Jeff Van Wagenen

Each department or agency has a Conflict of Interest Code that designates which employees must file a Form 700 ("Code Filers"), and includes information regarding disclosure categories.
For information on disclosure categories from the FPPC.
Each even-numbered year, Government Code section 87306.5 requires the County of Riverside review its Conflict of Interest Code and make appropriate revisions, if necessary.
