Conflict of interest

Mr. Perkins analyzes the new conflict-of-interest act, comparing its provisions with those of the former statutes and explaining the effect of specific revisions. Pointing out that the new act achieved considerable reform in consolidating the scattered and often unrelated statutes in the area, he concludes that it struck a fundamentally sound balance between the Government's need for high ethical standards in its employees and its need for recruiting highly qualified individuals for the federal service. The author considers the most serious deficiency of the act to be its failure to provide for satisfactory administrative machinery, but he suggests that this weakness could be largely overcome by effective executive branch action independent of legislation.
