Abstract: The major conflict of interest statutes are found in Sections 203, 205, 207, 208, and 209 of Title 18 of the United States Code and are intended to prevent Federal government officials from engaging in conduct detrimental to the best interests of the general public. Additionally, standards of ethical conduct for executive branch employees are set out in Executive Order 11,222, and procedures promulgated pursuant to Title 5 of the United States Code provide additional assistance to current and former Federal employees on avoiding conflicts of interest. The Congress has enacted conflict of interest laws piecemeal and should heed the advice of the Administrative Conference of the United States to develop thorough, refined, and comprehensive conflict of interest provisions. 97 footnotes.
