Abstract : In this chapter the Panel as assembled and reviewed those statutes that directly or indirectly affect the defense acquisition process by imposing limitations upon the conduct of Government employees, contractor representatives, or contractors. The chapter title was chosen, notwithstanding its connotation of administrative regulations and procedures, because the Panel's study included a sweep of topics extending far beyond the criminal provisions of Title 18. It ranged from the fraud and bribery section of that title to the statuatory rulemaking powers of the Office of Government Ethics, for the reason that so many of the statutes in this area have become, over time, interwoven with threads of administrative interpretation and supplementation. The Panel thus chose to open its review from the broadest possible perspective, looking not just at the role played by each law standing in isolation, but at their interrelationships and cumulative contributions to the sound conduct of defense procurement.
