DOD Prohibits Funding of Contractors with Certain Restrictive Confidentiality Agreements

DOD issues a class deviation from the FAR that addresses employee confidentiality agreements. If DOD determines that such an agreement can restrict an employee’s ability to report waste or fraud, DOD can yank the contractor’s funding.

As usual, the joy will be in the interpretation of the word ‘restricting’. Good financial ethics, as modeled in my book, require a concerned employee to report up the chain of command. Could telling someone else in the company before calling the government be considered ‘restrictive’?
