Part IV: Narrative Description of Activities

The Barack Obama Foundation will both plan and develop a Presidential Center for future
activities, including the Presidential Library, a museum and a broader campus, and engage in
activities reflecting President Obama's values and priorities throughout his career in public
service: expanding economic opportunity, inspiring an ethic of American citizenship, and
promoting peace, justice and dignity throughout the world. The Foundation envisions a
Presidential Center that, through its mission, initiatives, and physical and virtual presence,
advances and interprets the themes of civic engagement, global perspective, health and wellness,
environmental stewardship, public education, a spirit of innovation, and will become an anchor
for economic development and cultivate a strong relationship with the library's surrounding
community.

Through the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the federal government
operates and maintains presidential libraries, which primarily serve as archival repositories and
museums in which the records and memorabilia of the former presidents are held and made
available to researchers. The Presidential Library system was created in 1939, when President
Franklin Roosevelt proposed the create of a federally maintained repository to house his
presidential papers and other historical materials. Roosevelt created a private foundation to raise
funds for the construction of a library building, which was then donated to the National Archives
for operation as a federal facility.

Congress codified this model in the Presidential Libraries Act of 1955. The Act outlined the
legal authority of the General Services Administration (GSA) Administrator to accept the gift of
a presidential archival depository and to maintain, operate, and protect it as part of the national
archives system. In 1986, Congress passed substantial amendments to the Act, intended to
reduce the size and operating costs of the libraries by requiring an endowment to the government
to offset the cost of the library, and establishing architectural and design standards that had to be
met before a library building would be accepted by the government.

Under the Presidential Libraries Act, the endowment must be 60% of the total costs of acquiring,
constructing, and installing the facility and its equipment; plus either 60% of the total costs of
acquiring the land (or another measure of the land's value that is mutually agreed upon by the
Archivist and donor) if the United States is taking title to the land; or 60% of the total costs to the
donor of any improvements to the land if the government is not taking title to it.

The Foundation will serve as the vehicle by which the Presidential Library is constructed and, in
accordance with the statutory requirements described above, by which the endowment necessary
for NARA to operate the Presidential Library is created and funded. The Foundation anticipates
negotiating a joint use agreement with NARA in the future, which will outline the
responsibilities of both the Foundation and the government and will likely require the
Foundation to provide ongoing support for the activities of the Presidential Library.

THE BARACK OBAMA FOUNDATION

CONFLICTS OF INTEREST POLICY

A. Purpose

The purpose of the Conflicts of Interest Policy (the "policy") is to protect the interests of the
organization when it is contemplating entering into a transaction or arrangement that might
benefit the private interest of an officer or Director of the organization or might result in a
possible excess benefit transaction. This policy is intended to supplement, but not replace, any
applicable state and federal laws governing conflicts of interest applicable to nonprofit and
charitable organizations.

B. Definitions

1. Interested Person

Any Director, principal officer, or member of a committee with governing board-delegated


powers, who has a direct or indirect financial interest, as defined below, is an interested person.

2. Financial Interest

A person has a financial interest if the person has, directly or indirectly, through business,
investment, or family:

a. An ownership or investment interest in any entity with which the


organization has a transaction or arrangement;

b. A compensation arrangement with the organization or with any entity or


individual with which the organization has a transaction or arrangement;
or

c. A potential ownership or investment interest in, or compensation


arrangement with, any entity or individual with which the organization is
negotiating a transaction or arrangement.

Compensation includes direct and indirect remuneration, as well as gifts or favors that are not

The Barack Obama Foundation
Form 1023 Attachments
EIN 46-4950751

A financial interest is not necessarily a conflict of interest. Under procedures outlined below, a
person who has a financial interest may have a conflict of interest only if the appropriate
governing board or committee decides that a conflict of interest exists.

C. Procedures

1. Duty to Disclose

In connection with any actual or possible conflict of interest, an interested person must disclose
the existence of the financial interest and be given the opportunity to disclose all material facts to
the Directors and members of committees with governing board-delegated powers considering
the proposed transaction or arrangement.

2. Determining Whether a Conflict of Interest Exists

After disclosure of the financial interest and all material facts, and after any discussion with the
interested person, he or she shall leave the governing board or committee meeting while the
determination of a conflict of interest is discussed and voted upon. The remaining board or
committee members shall decide if a conflict of interest exists.

3. Procedures for Addressing the Conflict of Interest

a. An interested person may make a presentation at the governing board or


committee meeting, but after the presentation, he or she shall leave the
meeting during the discussion of and the vote on the transaction or
arrangement involving the possible conflict of interest.

b. The chairperson of the governing board or committee shall, if appropriate,


appoint a disinterested person or committee to investigate alternatives to
the proposed transaction or arrangement.

c. After exercising due diligence, the governing board or committee shall


determine whether the organization can obtain with reasonable efforts a
more advantageous transaction or arrangement from a person or entity that
would not give rise to a conflict of interest.

d. If a more advantageous transaction or arrangement is not reasonably


possible under circumstances not producing a conflict of interest, the
governing board or committee shall determine by a majority vote of the
disinterested Directors whether the transaction or arrangement is in the
organization's best interest, for its own benefit, and whether it is fair and
reasonable. In conformity with the above determination, it shall make its
decision as to whether to enter into the transaction or arrangement.

D. Violations of the Policy

-12-

88996-0001 /LEGAL 120127101.5


The Barack Obama Foundation
Form 1023 Attachments
EIN 46-4950751

1 If the governing board or committee has reasonable cause to believe a Director,


principal officer or member of a committee has failed to disclose actual or
possible conflicts of interest, it shall inform such person of the basis for such
belief and afford the person an opportunity to explain the alleged failure to
disclose.

2. If, after hearing the Director's, principal officer's or member's response and after
making further investigation as warranted by the circumstances, the governing
board or committee determines such person has failed to disclose an actual or
possible conflict of interest, it shall take appropriate disciplinary and corrective
action.

E. Records of Proceedings

The minutes of the governing board and all committees with board-delegated powers shall
contain:

1 The names of the persons who disclosed or otherwise were found to have a
financial interest in connection with an actual or possible conflict of interest, the
nature of the financial interest, any action taken to determine whether a conflict of
interest was present, and the governing board or committee's decision as to
whether a conflict of interest in fact existed.

2. The names of the persons who were present for discussions and votes relating to
the transaction or arrangement, the content of the discussion, including any
alternatives to the proposed transaction or arrangement, and a record of any votes
taken in connection with the proceedings.

F. Compensation

1. A voting member of the governing board who receives compensation, directly or


indirectly, from the organization for services is precluded from voting on matters
pertaining to that member's compensation.

2. A voting member of any committee whose jurisdiction includes compensation


matters and who receives compensation, directly or indirectly, from the
organization for services is precluded from voting on matters pertaining to that
member's compensation.

3. No voting member of the governing board or any committee whose jurisdiction


includes compensation matters and who receives compensation, directly or
indirectly, from the organization, either individually or collectively, is prohibited
from providing information to any committee regarding compensation.

The Barack Obama Foundation
Form 1023 Attachments

2. Has read and understands the policy;

3. Has agreed to comply with the policy; and

4. Understands that the organization is charitable, and that in order to maintain its
federal tax exemption, it must engage primarily in activities that accomplish one
or more of its tax-exempt purposes.

H. Periodic Reviews

To ensure that the organization operates in a manner consistent with charitable purposes and
does not engage in activities that could jeopardize its tax-exempt status, periodic reviews shall be
conducted. The periodic reviews shall, at a minimum, include the following subjects:

1. Whether compensation arrangements and benefits are reasonable, based on


competent survey information and the result of arm's length bargaining.

2. Whether partnerships, joint ventures, and arrangements with management


organizations conform to the organization's written policies, are properly
recorded, reflect reasonable investment or payments for goods and services,
further charitable purposes and do not result in inurement, impermissible private
benefit or an excess benefit transaction.

1. Use of Outside Experts

When conducting the periodic reviews as provided for in this policy, the organization may, but
need not, use outside advisors. If outside experts are used, their use shall not relieve the
governing board of its responsibility for ensuring that periodic reviews are conducted.
