The filing of the CIQ must be filed within seven business days of starting discussions or negotiations or submitting a bid, proposal or other correspondence relating to a potential contract and within seven business days of becoming aware of an employment or other business relationship or gifts to an officer that would require disclosure. It is a Class C misdemeanor to knowingly fail to file form CIQ.
