(a) Incorporation by Reference of Standard Code and Appendix. The Political Reform Act, Government Code Section 81000 et seq., requires state and local government agencies to adopt and promulgate conflict of interest regulations. The Fair Political Practices Commission has adopted a regulation, 2 Cal. Code of Regulations Section 18730, which contains the terms of a standard Conflict of Interest Code, which can be incorporated by reference, and which may be amended by the Fair Political Practices Commission to conform to amendments in the Political Reform Act after public notice and hearings. Therefore, the terms of 2 Cal. Code of Regulations Section 18730 and any amendments to it duly adopted by the Fair Political Practices Commission, along with the attached Appendix in which officials and employees are designated and disclosure categories are set forth, are hereby incorporated by reference. The Standard Code and the Appendix together constitute the Conflict of Interest Code of the California State Teachers' Retirement System (CalSTRS), except as provided in subsection (b) below.

(b) Filing Requirements. Designated individuals shall file statements of economic interests with CalSTRS, pursuant to Section 4 of the Standard Code. CalSTRS shall make such statements available for public inspection and reproduction. Corporate entities under contract serving as consultants to or contractors for CalSTRS need not file statements of economic interests; however, the natural person within the entity who provides the consulting or contractual services must file the statement of economic interests. With respect to officials who are determined to manage public investments, within the meaning of Government Code Section 87200, they shall also be required to file statement of economic interests (contractors who fall within the meaning of managing public investments shall also be required to file statements of economic interests). Upon receipt of the statements of economic interests of Board Members, representatives of Ex-Officio Board Members, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Investment Officer, Deputy Chief Investment Officers, Directors in the Investment Branch, Portfolio Managers and others falling within the designation of officials who are determined to manage public investments, CalSTRS shall make and retain a copy and forward the original of these statements to the Fair Political Practices Commission. Statements of all other designated employees will be retained by CalSTRS.
