The Guam Ethics Commission

The Guam Ethics Commission (the “Commission”) was created under Title 4 GCA § 15000 et seq. (the “Act”) to promote the highest standards of ethical conduct by nominated, appointed, elected officers, and other persons in every branch of government including the legislature, the judiciary, the government’s public corporations, departments, bureaus, line agencies, autonomous and semi-autonomous agencies, instrumentalities, entities or sub-entities, the Mayor’s Council, and Mayors’ Offices (these persons are government “Employees” under the Act). The Commission takes all allegations about ethics violations seriously and encourages anyone possessing information about an Employee’s violation of the Standards of Conduct (the “Ethical Standards”) to file a complaint with the Commission. Violation of the Standards of Conduct can be found at Title 4 GCA §§ 15201, 15202, 15203, 15204, 15205, 15206, 15208 and 15210. A complaint is timely if, at the time of filing, the alleged violation has occurred within the last three years.

Jurisdiction over your Complaint

This Ethics Complaint Form (this “Form”) is used for Complainants to file an official, confidential complaint with the Commission. It asks for the essential details of your Complaint so that the Commission has enough details to determine whether your complaint is (i) about a violation of the Ethical Standards, (ii) involves an Employee, and (iii) occurred within the last 3 years. These essential details allow the Commission to take jurisdiction over your complaint. If your complaint does not include at least these essential details, the Commission is not permitted to take further action on it, and you will be informed about the Commission’s not having jurisdiction over it. If the Commission does take jurisdiction over your complaint, you may be contacted for further information and or statements to support an investigation. You may also be asked to testify at a formal hearing before the Commission.
