Workforce Strategic Plan 2013-2017:

In 2009, the WISF adopted its initial Workforce Strategic Plan, setting San Francisco on a clear path to meeting the workforce needs of its residents. The Plan established a vision and mission for the City's workforce system.

Annual Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700):

All appointed board members are required to E-File the Statement of Economic Interest (Form 700) with the San Francisco Ethics Commission within 30 days of assuming office, annually thereafter, and when leaving office. In March 2017, the Ethics Commission launched a new E-Filing functionality for filing Sunshine Ordinance Declaration and Certificate of Ethics Training, using the same system (Netfile) that supports e-filing for Form 700. As a part of that effort they have also embedded the online trainings (Ethics and Sunshine) within NetFile so that filers can complete all of the requirements in one place. 

The Statement of Economic Interest (Form 700) is required for all appointed board members within 30 days of appointment. City officers and designated employees are required to disclose reportable financial interests by filing Statement of Economic Interests (SEI), also known as Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) Form 700. These public filings help officials and employees monitor their financial interests, identify when those interests might conflict with their government actions, and take steps to avoid conflicts of interests.

The Form 700 description can be found here: Ethics Commission's Form 700
The Sunshine and Ethics training information can be found on the Ethics Commission's Sunshine and Ethics training webpage
