The Revolving Door (Part 2)

Today, the Department of Homeland Security ruined the personal "retirement" plans of hundreds of its own executives and senior managers.

DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff announced that, starting June 7, ex-feds must spend a year off after leaving the agency before coming back for a hand-out as a contractor.

Previously, the one-year ban applied only to ex-feds approaching their specific, former agency. The new rule expands the prohibition to the department as a whole.

DHS is not famous for "best practices" in the acquisition world, but this is one the Department of Defense should give some serious thought to.
