Focus on Ethics and Confidentiality

Addressing ethical standards in public management starts with the hiring process. Recruiting talented, trustworthy and ethical individuals can be a time-consuming process. Adopted in 1924, the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) developed a Code of Ethics which defined the principles that today serve as the foundation for the local government management profession and set the standard for excellence. The mission of ICMA is to create excellence in local governance by developing and fostering professional local government management worldwide. IPM requires each of our Associates to abide by ICMA’s code of ethics and sign confidentiality agreements to protect the client.

Each Interim Public Management Associate accepts the following Code of Ethics:

  • Be dedicated to the concepts of effective and democratic public service
