GAO commented on a General Services Administration proposal to change prohibited contract award provisions in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). GAO had no objection to exempting such special government employees as temporary advisors and consultants from the general prohibition against government employees receiving government contracts, but advised that FAR should make clear that such exemptions were not intended to limit an agency's discretion to decline to contract with such employees or their firms if the agency determines that such action was necessary to preserve the integrity of the procurement process.
