This Legal Advisory discusses the recent amendments to the gifts and travel reimbursements reporting thresholds at 5 C.F.R. §§ 2634.304 and 2634.907(g) and the widely attended gathering (WAG) gift exception ceiling for nonsponsor gifts of free attendance at 5 C.F.R. § 2635.204(g)(3).

PA-20-04: Annual Update of Post-Employment Component Designations (18 U.S.C. § 207(c)) due to OGE by July 1, 2020
In this Program Advisory, OGE asks each agency to forward 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.

LA-20-03: Conflict of Interest Analysis for Stocks under 18 U.S.C. § 208
This Legal Advisory reminds agency ethics officials that under 18 U.S.C. § 208, an employee may not participate in any particular matter that would have a direct and predictable effect on the financial interests of a company in which the employee (or any imputed person) owns stock, not merely those particular matters that would affect the stock price.
