Q: A state employee and ineligible as a vendor. Title 17, section 54522 says "exceptions may apply" what are the exception
I want to open a group home for mentally disabled adults in North Bay Regional center but I work for the state of California. Title 17 says I am not eligible because I work for the state of California but exceptions apply. Please what are the exception? Thank you. Stella
A: Hello Stella, while I can offer some general information, to get the most accurate advice, it would be prudent to consult the specific language of Title 17, section 54522 of the California Code of Regulations and potentially seek advice from an attorney with experience in this area. Generally, “exceptions may apply” could potentially refer to situations where there is no conflict of interest, or perhaps in instances where a state employee's role is not in a position to influence decisions regarding vendor activities or contractual relationships. To know the specific exceptions in your circumstance, you would need to review the detailed provisions and guidelines provided in the regulations or consult with a legal expert who can provide advice based on a complete understanding of your situation and the relevant regulations.
