Key is the amendment to 52.203-13 that enlarges the requirements for a contractor’s code of business ethics and conduct.

Beginning December 12, 2008, contractors and subcontractors performing federal contracts—irrespective of monetary value or duration—will be legally obligated to disclose to the relevant federal agency’s Office of Inspector General credible evidence of

* federal criminal law violations involving fraud, conflict of interest, bribery or gratuities;
