(1) A conflict of interest means any situation in which an adjudicator has competing professional or personal interests which make it difficult to fulfill his or her duties impartially or where incompatibility or contradictory interests exist. A conflict of interest can create an appearance of impropriety that can undermine confidence in the ability of that person to act properly in his or her position even if no improper acts result.
