Document Number: E8-5484
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-03-24
Agency: Office of Government Ethics, Government Ethics Office, Agencies and Commissions
The Office of Government Ethics is updating its executive branch regulation on financial disclosure to reflect the retroactive statutory increase of the reporting thresholds for gifts and travel reimbursements. As a matter of regulatory policy, OGE is also raising the widely attended gatherings nonsponsor gifts exception dollar ceiling under the executive branchwide standards of ethical conduct regulation, but this change is not retroactive. Finally, OGE is also correcting a typographical error in an unrelated provision of the financial disclosure regulation.
