White House Proposes Mandatory Disclosure of Political Contributions by Federal Contractors


A proposed Obama Administration executive order would require all federal contractors to disclose political contributions and expenditures made by their principals and related entities during the two years prior to submitting a bid.

As a condition for receiving an award, contractors would be required to disclose the following contributions, if the annual aggregate amount of such contributions exceeds $5,000 to a given recipient:

- Contributions made to federal candidates or political parties by the bidding entity, its directors or officers, or any affiliates or subsidiaries within its control; and

- Contributions made to third party entities with the intention or reasonable expectation that the contributions will be used to make independent expenditures or electioneering communications
