On July 15, 2008, WLF filed formal comments with the General Services Administration (GSA) on the proposed rule by GSA, the Department of Defense, and NASA, opposing proposed rules that would trigger suspension or debarment proceedings for government contractors for failing to disclose alleged civil violations of the False Claims Act. WLF argued that the proposed rule should not be promulgated because it is inconsistent with recently enacted legislation, imposes vague and ambiguous reporting obligations, and would threaten the attorney-client privilege.
