Today, the Office of the General Counsel issued guidance on the federal prohibition against contractors performing inherently governmental functions.  The guidance sets out the basic rules for what contactors can and cannot do and provides best practices for federal DOE employees when using contractor services.  Since 2009, the General Counsel’s office has made available on its websitenon-privileged legal guidance on topics ranging from contractor relations to standards of conduct to information law.  Doing so helps to ensure that the Department’s authoritative legal guidance is readily available to all who may need it and consistently applied across the DOE complex and to the public.
