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 again on December 9, 2010 to discuss a draft recommendation on expanding the ethics rules applicable to government contractors and their employees.
From 9 a.m. to 12 noon on March 16, 2011, the committee will discuss a revised draft recommendation based on the Ethics Report and on the discussion from the first two meetings. A copy of the draft recommendation will be made available at http://www.acus.gov prior to the March 16, 2011 meeting. This meeting will be open to the public and may end prior to 12 noon 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 March 14, 2011, 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.
