This Legal Advisory summarizes the provisions of the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013, that affect the Executive Branch Ethics Program.
This legal advisory is a reminder that ethics laws and regulations continue to apply to Federal Government employees during furlough periods.
OGE asks each agency to forward to OGE its annual letter stating whether its components that are currently designated should remain designated for purposes of 18 U.S.C. § 207(c). Any request to modify the existing list of components should be submitted in accordance with regulatory procedures.
Paragraphs 4 (post-employment cooling-off period) and 5 (post-employment lobbying ban) of the Ethics Pledge, Executive Order 13490, impose significant new post-employment restrictions on non-career appointees.
OGE issues the final post-government employment rule, to be codified in 5 C.F.R. Part 2641.
OGE provides guidance on the application of the post-government employment restrictions at 18 U.S.C. § 207(a) and 18 U.S.C. § 207(c).

18 U.S.C. § 207(j)(7) provides an exception to the one-year no-contact ban for former senior employees and the two-year no-contact ban for very senior employees. These categories of employees do not violate the statute if a communication or appearance is on behalf of a candidate or one of the specified political entities.
This list is open only to federal government employees.
