NAO BLOG: Conflicts of interest can be high profile and undermine public confidence, damage reputations, bring decisions into disrepute or legal challenge, drive resignations, or result in criminal action. How do conflicts of interest arise? How can they be prevented, detected and addressed? Our blog-post draws on our investigations to illustrate the different types and consequences of conflicts of interest, and outlines good practice management and how to report a conflict of interest.
