More Flexible OCI Rule May Benefit Contractors
June 14, 2011 — Government Contracts Law360
Government Contracts Group counsel Peter J. Eyre is featured in Government Contracts Law360 for his thoughts on the proposed reform of the organizational conflicts of interest (OCI) rule. Regulators are currently weighing a more flexible approach that prioritizes competitive fairness and protection of nonpublic information over safeguarding the government's interests.
According to Eyre, "It's an issue that is of terrific importance. It really goes to the fundamental framework of government procurements, which is competition."
