Financial Disclosure Report
Who Must File: The Office of General Counsel (OGC) will inform you if the position in which you serve or will serve has been designated as requiring confidential financial disclosure. Agencies are required to designate positions at or below GS-15, O-6, or comparable pay rates, in which the nature of duties may involve a potential conflict of interest. Examples include contracting, procurement, administration of grants and licenses, regulating/auditing non-Federal entities, other activities having a substantial economic effect on non-Federal entities, or law enforcement. Additionally, all special Government employees (SGEs) (those appointed pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 202(a) to serve no more than 130 days in a period of 365 days) must file, unless exempted or subject to the public reporting system. Agencies may also require certain employees in positions above GS-15, O-6, or a comparable pay rate to file. Contact OGC for the SF-450 and instructions for completing the form.
OGC Contact Information: The OGC may be reached at (202)482-3326.
