Insourcing’s Latest Dilemma: OCI

GovernmentIn a publication issued June 4th, DoD’s Standards of Conduct Office (SOCO) reminded all DoD employees that its policy guidelines prohibit them from serving on the boards of non-federal entities (NFEs) that they deal with professionally.

This announcement comes ahead of a proposed DoD plan to insource 11,000 acquisition personnel, bringing them out of the private sector and in to government.

The memo includes a promise to release “updated information soon” specific to insourcing, but has little new information apart from revealing the latest bridge DoD will have to cross to implement a key part of its strategy to strengthen acquisitions: how to guarantee the impartiality of a large number of employees who recently served in the private sector.
