MEMORANDUM

Posted: March 5, 2020 09:58 AM
From: Senator Mario M. Scavello
To: All Senate members
Subject: Legislation addressing the "revolving door" employment of executive-level employees of a State agency by businesses which have contracts with that agency.
 

In the near future, I intend to introduce legislation that would address the "revolving door" employment of executive-level employees of a State agency by businesses which have contracts with that agency. Pennsylvania law currently prohibits a former official or employee from representing a person before the governmental body with which he was associated for one year and an executive-level State employee from being employed by a business that he is actively participated in recruiting to or inducing the expansion of in Pennsylvania for two years.

My legislation would prohibit a former executive-level State employee with responsibilities related to the awarding of a contract, the development of policies or requirements relating to a contract, the negotiation of a contract or other participation in the development or awarding of a contract from seeking or accepting employment with an entity that contracts or intends to contract with that same agency. The prohibition shall be for a two year period. Likewise, the legislation would limit the participation of a former employee of a contractor in the direct negotiation of a contract on behalf of a State agency.

If you have any questions regarding this legislation, please contact Christine Zubeck in my office at 717-787-6123 or czubeck@pasen.gov. Thank you for your consideration.
