Annual Reports

The Ethics Office publishes an annual report to inform city officials, the Board of Ethics, and citizens about the work of the Ethics Office and the state of ethics within the City of Atlanta. As part of the budget process, the Ethics Office presents yearly highlights to the City Council detailing its specific activities in numbers.


Ethics forms may be submitted two ways:

Online forms. The four financial disclosure forms are filed online: the Annual Financial Disclosure Statement, Conflict of Interest Disclosure Report, Gift to the City Report, and Travel Disclosure Report. To assist filers, a copy of each form is available to review and download on the Forms webpage. In addition, elected officials, employees, and city board members may submit a request for advice or register for a workshop by completing a form online.

Forms to download. The Ethics Office has developed forms that enable employees and citizens to file an ethics complaint and allow financial disclosure filers to appeal decisions finding them delinquent. These forms must be downloaded and completed before being sent to the Ethics Office by email, fax, U.S. mail, or personal delivery. As a public service, the office has provided the Outside Employment form that most departments use to monitor their employees’ extra jobs for potential conflicts of interest.


Besides annual reports, the office publishes ethics reports on specific investigations, Integrity Line reports on the calls received on the ethics and compliance hotline, and biennial work plan reports on efforts made to achieve the goals set out in each two-year plan. In the area of financial disclosure, the ethics officer reports each year to the Board of Ethics on the persons who meet the filing deadline, those who file late, and those who fail to file any statement that year.

Finally, reports written by others about ethics in Atlanta are provided on the Reports webpage, including the Ethics Task Force Report published after the 2001 election and the Ethics Case Study by the Atlanta Committee for Progress.
