Mandatory Disclosure And Cooperation To Be Proposed For Commercial Item And Overseas Contractors


In a hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on April 15, 2008, the Administrator for Federal Procurement Policy indicated that he is inclined to issue a new proposed rule that would subject commercial item contracts and contracts performed overseas to mandatory disclosure to the agency inspector general when the contractor "has reasonable grounds to believe that a principal, employee, agency, or subcontractor of the [c]ontractor has committed a violation of Federal criminal law in connection with the award or performance of [a] contract or any subcontract thereunder." Such proposed rule would also modify a November 14, 2007 proposal, discussed in the linked article by C&M's Angela Styles, to mandate "[f]ull cooperation with Government agencies responsible for audit, investigation, or corrective action" for commercial item and overseas contracts.
