SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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 is available at http://www.acus.gov. The Committee on Administration met on November 3, 2010 to discuss the Ethics Report and the broader issue of whether and how the regulations applicable to government contractors and their employees should be expanded.

From 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on December 9, 2010, the committee will discuss a draft recommendation based on the Ethics Report and on the discussion from the first meeting. A copy of the draft recommendation will be made available at http://www.acus.gov prior to the December 9, 2010 meeting. This meeting will be open to the public and may end prior to 11 a.m. if business is concluded prior to that time. Members of the public are invited to attend the meeting in person, subject to space limitations, and the Conference will also provide remote public access to the meeting.

Anyone who wishes to attend the meeting in person is asked to RSVP to Comments@acus.gov. Remote access information will be posted on the Conference's Web site, http://www.acus.gov, by no later than December 6, 2010 and will also be available by the same date by calling the phone number listed above. Members of the public who attend the Committee's meeting may be permitted to speak only at the discretion of the Committee Chair, with unanimous approval of the Committee. The Conference welcomes the attendance of the public and will make every effort to accommodate persons with physical disabilities or special needs.
