About NCOE

The Nevada Commission on Ethics is an 8-member body appointed by the Governor and Legislative Commission to interpret and enforce the provisions of the Ethics in Government Law set forth in NRS Chapter 281A (“Ethics Law”). The Ethics Law establishes the public policy and standards of conduct necessary to ensure the integrity and impartiality of government, free from conflicts of interest between public duties and private interests of state and local public officers and employees. The Commission and its staff focus on four main functions: 1) interpreting and enforcing the provisions of the Ethics Law; 2) investigating and adjudicating public complaints alleging ethics violations by public officers and employees; 3) providing outreach and education to public officers and employees to enhance their awareness and understanding of ethics requirements and prohibitions under Nevada law; and 4) accepting and monitoring various filings required of certain public officers.
