Abstract (Summary)

Personal conflicts of interest (PCIs) among acquisition support contractor employees and organizational conflicts of interest (OCIs) are two increasingly important areas in Government contracting in which clear, effective, and up-to-date regulatory coverage is desperately needed. A Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) proposed rule on PCIs and a Defense FAR Supplement (DFARS) proposed rule and a FAR proposed rule on OCIs have recently been issued to attempt to provide such coverage. This paper will analyze and discuss the proposed rules on PCIs and OCIs, and the public comments submitted on them, as well as inputs from the Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS) Government Contractor Ethics Project, and will suggest ways in which the proposed regulatory coverage on both PCIs and OCIs could be further revised and improved to ensure that the finalized regulatory coverage achieves even better overall results from the standpoint of both Government contracting agencies and Government contractors and their employees.
