The Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS) is charged with developing recommendations for the improvement of Federal administrative procedures (5 U.S.C. 591).
The Conference has engaged a Professor of Law at Washington University in St. Louis School of Law, Kathleen Clark, to research and prepare a report regarding whether ethics regulations analogous to those applicable to government employees should apply to government contractors and, if so, how such regulations should be imposed (the “Ethics Report”). A copy of the Ethics Report will be available at http://www.acus.gov. The Committee on Administration has been tasked with reviewing this report and developing recommendations for consideration by the Assembly of the Conference.
From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on November 3, 2010, the Committee on Administration will hold a meeting to consider the Ethics Report and formulate appropriate recommendations in response thereto. This meeting will be open to the public and may end prior to 4 p.m. if business is concluded prior to that time.
