S. 2061, Preventing Conflicts of Interest with Contractors Act

Cost Estimate
July 10, 2014

As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on June 25, 2014

CBO estimates that enacting S. 2061 would have no impact on the federal budget. Enacting the bill would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

S. 2061 would amend federal law to prevent security clearance contractors from reviewing and approving their own background investigations. Because this legislation would put into statute the current policy and practice of the Office of Personnel Management, CBO estimates that implementing S. 2061 would have no effect on the budget.

S. 2061 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments budget.
