At McKinsey, we are sensitive to the ethical considerations and obligations associated with government employees attending events. Pursuant to 5 CFR § 2635.204(g), we believe that this event falls within the “Widely Attended Gathering” exception, which, subject to a determination of agency interest and a written authorization by your agency designee, serves as an exception to certain government ethics restrictions.
Each portion of the agenda is an integral part of the event during which we would welcome your viewpoint and participation in the exchange of ideas. We recommend that you coordinate with your ethics official for official confirmation of your agency determination. We are happy to provide additional cost information and/or breakdown, if helpful.
