Arizona Public Service Orientation

Project Overview

Arizona state law requires that all state employees complete a Public Service Orientation that covers policies and laws relating to the proper business conduct for a public employee. The training is currently offered on the HR website

University Initiatives & Policy partnered with Human Resources and EDGE Learning to turn the Arizona Public Service Orientation into a more thorough, engaging training in EDGE Learning. Subject matter experts for each policy and law provided valuable input on the training. In addition, campus partners from the Compliance Office, Privacy Office, Human Resources, and the Office of the General Counsel provided overall review and guidance.

Topics include:

  • Public access to records and information
  • Open meeting laws 
  • Political activity
  • Discrimination
  • Conflicts of interest 
  • Nepotism
  • Gifts and extra compensation
  • Outside employment
  • Financial disclosure
  • Bribery
  • Personal use and misuse of university assets
  • Contracting
  • Whistleblowing
  • Disclosure of confidential information
  • Conduct after leaving one’s position with the university

This new training is scheduled to be launched in April of 2024.
