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 impending insourcing of these personnel leaves many questions open, including how to ensure that new DoD workers don’t share information with former co-workers.

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.
