Advisory Board for Safer Gambling: Managing conflicts of interest policy
20. Advisory Board for Safer Gambling (ABSG) benefits from the presence of one or more members who are, or have been, active researchers in the gambling area. There is no objection, and some advantage, to such members continuing their research activities while members of ABSG.
21. It is important, however, that ABSG members tendering for projects do not derive, nor are perceived to derive, an advantage from their role with AGSB. ABSG members, therefore, should not bid to carry out work from the research programme they had a role in advising upon.
22. ABSG has on record stated that gambling research should not be funded through voluntary contributions. Therefore, ABSG members are not expected to bid for research contracts where the source of funds is voluntary contributions from the gambling industry.Previous section
