Title: ●Representation Regarding Compensation of Former DoD Officials (DFARS Case 2010-D020) 
Abstract: This rule amends the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to require that offerors represent whether former DoD officials employed by the offeror are in compliance with post-employment restrictions concerning post-government employment for DoD and other Federal employees after leaving Government employment. The proposed rule will require offerors to submit representations at the time of contract award that all former DoD officials that are covered by the Procurement Integrity Act are in compliance with post-employment restrictions set forth in DFARS 203.171-3 and DFARS 252.203-7000. The representation goes further in also requiring a representation that former DoD employees employed by the contractor are also in compliance with additional post-employment restrictions. This representation will be required in contracts for commercial items. There is no impact on the offeror unless the former DoD officials covered by the Procurement Integrity Act are not in compliance with the post–employment restrictions. In order to submit an offer, small entities that hire a former DoD official covered by the Procurement Integrity Act will have to check the compliance of such employees with various applicable post-employment restrictions. DFARS 252.203-7000, Requirements Relating to Compensation of Former DoD Officials, already requires contractors to determine that a covered DoD official has sought and received, or has not received after 30 days of seeking, a written opinion from the appropriate DoD ethics counselor, regarding the applicability of post-employment restrictions to the activities that the official is expected to undertake on behalf of the contractor. Therefore, this representation of compliance does not impose an additional burden on the offeror. Any economic impact is expected to be minimal.
