Registered Lobbyist Contact Disclosures
On March 20, 2009, the President issued a memorandum entitled "Ensuring Responsible Spending of Recovery Act Funds". Section 3 of the memorandum outlines specific requirements which executive department or agency employees must follow regarding communications with federally registered lobbyists about Recovery Act funds.
OMB guidance (PDF) (14 pp., 110K, about PDF) to implement these requirements requires in part that any EPA employee contacted orally or in writing regarding Recovery Act matters by any registered lobbyist (including persons associated with for-profit companies, non-profit organizations, and state and local governments) must document the communication using the Registered Lobbyist Contact Disclosure Form included in the OMB guidance.
