The Office of the Vice President is seeking to fill its Ethics Counsel detail position, beginning on April 1, 2015 for 6 months. This position is our sole ethics lawyer, so it’s a mission-essential detail. As should be clear from the following position summary, the sponsoring agency will benefit from the leadership experience and substantive legal knowledge that the prospective detailee will earn at OVP.
The Ethics Counsel detail in the Office of the Vice President – OVP’s only dedicated ethics attorney – provides comprehensive ethics support to the Vice President, Dr. Biden, and OVP staff. The Ethics Counsel, a position best filled by a senior ethics attorney, will manage the OVP ethics program on a day-to-day basis, handle issues that touch on nearly all aspects of federal ethics law, and provide mission-essential guidance to the Vice President, Dr. Biden, and OVP staff. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, conducting and tracking all ethics training; administering OVP’s financial disclosure program; providing ethics counseling related to the Standards of Ethical Conduct; and counseling new employees on conflict of interest issues and departing employees on post-government employment restrictions. The Ethics Counsel will also be primarily responsible for interacting with the Office of Government Ethics on a range of issues, including preparing OVP’s annual ethics program review, responding to OGE inspections and other requests for information, coordinating ethics advice, and certifying financial disclosure reports. In addition, the Ethics Counsel helps support the office’s overall compliance efforts related to the Hatch Act, Senate Ethics Rules, the Presidential Records Act, appropriations law, and other laws and policies. This is a career-broadening opportunity for an ethics attorney to gain valuable experience managing an ethics program and handling a diverse range of ethics matters, experience that will benefit the attorney and the sponsoring agency.
