    Nah, as long as they aren't the ones creating a recommended spec for all departments to purchase from all is well. That's the same condition in most areas, especially with so many salespeople being responders also. As long as the sales life and responder life are separate there's no conflict.

    Either way don't see it being an issue because the conflict of interest wording was intended to prevent the same person from writing the grant and then writing the spec on top of selling the equipment/vehicle to the department. As long as they aren't the ones writing the grant and handling the bid process there's no conflict.
    They are instructors, board members and other management staff.

    I just don't what to get into a gray area that could raise some flags.

    Conflict of INterest Question

    I am fully aware of the conflict of interest section of the guidelines but there is a question that is bugging me and I really do not know what to do.

    Many vendors of the equipment we are awarded a grant for are actually employees of the State Fire Commission, which handles all state training, records, instructor classes, props, etc.

    Since they are employees of the fire commission do they fall under the conflict of interest guidelines?
