Semiannual Regulatory Agenda; Fall 2004

AGENCY: Office of Government Ethics.

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: The following Office of Government Ethics (OGE) substantive 
and procedural regulations are scheduled for development or review 
during the six-month period following publication. This agenda fulfills 
OGE's responsibility to publish a semiannual regulatory agenda under 
Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and has been 
prepared in accordance with guidance received from the Office of 
Management and Budget. None of the OGE regulations in this agenda will 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities as defined under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 
chapter 6. In addition, none of the listed OGE regulatory actions are 
procurement-related.

     This publication in the Federal Register does not impose a 
binding obligation on the Office of Government Ethics with respect 
to any particular item on its agenda. The dates shown for the 
future steps of each action are estimates and not commitments to 
act by the date shown. Moreover, other OGE regulatory actions, in 
addition to the entries listed, are not precluded.

3533. INTERPRETATION, EXEMPTIONS, AND WAIVER GUIDANCE CONCERNING 18 
U.S.C. 208 (ACTS AFFECTING A PERSONAL FINANCIAL INTEREST)




Priority: Other Significant

Legal Authority: 5 USC app, Ethics in Government Act of 1978; EO 12674; 
EO 12731; 18 USC 208

CFR Citation: 5 CFR 2640

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: This regulation interprets section 208(a) of title 18, 
U.S.C., which prohibits officers and employees of the executive branch 
from officially participating personally and substantially in a 
particular matter in which there is a personal financial interest or a 
financial interest of a related person or organization (absent a waiver 
or exemption under 18 U.S.C. 208(b)). It also lists and describes 
interests considered too remote or too inconsequential to affect the 
integrity of the services of executive branch officers or employees, in 
accordance with 18 U.S.C. 208(b)(2). Such interests are exempt from the 
restrictions of 18 U.S.C. 208(a), generally requiring

[[Page 73995]]

disqualification. The regulation also provides guidance to executive 
branch agencies as to the kinds of interests that are not so 
substantial as to be deemed likely to affect the integrity of the 
services the Government may expect from an employee and which, 
therefore, may be waived from the general rule of disqualification 
under 18 U.S.C. 208(a), pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 208(b)(1). In addition, 
guidance is provided concerning the issuance of waivers to special 
Government employee advisory committee members, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 
208(b)(3). A separate interim final rule, published in 1995 exempting 
certain financial interests arising from Federal Government executive 
branch employment as well as from Social Security or veterans' benefits 
from the general prohibition in section 208(a), was incorporated in the 
overall final rule. Additional exemptions are considered for 
development from time to time as appropriate.

Abstract: Regulation revising the executive branch public and

officials and certain mid-level employees, respectively. These 
disclosure provisions apply to public reports filed since January 1, 
1991. Subpart I of the regulation, effective October 5, 1992, 
superseded prior executive branchwide and agency-specific regulations 
and established a revised system of confidential reporting, modeled 
generally on the public reporting system, for executive branch agency 
mid-level employees with sensitive duties and special Government 
employees. This regulation also has a subpart dealing with certificates 
of divestiture.
