Employees must renew their request for approval annually if they desire to continue any long term outside activity. In addition, employees must submit a revised request for approval if they change positions within the agency or if a significant change occurs in the nature of the outside activity or in the scope of the employees' duties.

You may perform this outside activity under the following conditions:

1. It must not create a real or apparent conflict of interest,

2. You must not participate in any action taken by the organization to endorse, encourage, or oppose the adoption of a formal policy or position of CDC, HHS, or the Federal Government.

3. Government-financed time, supplies, facilities, or equipment assigned or loaned to you for completion of your official duties may be used for this outside activity only as permitted by the Information Resources Management Manual Guide, CDC-8, June 99, "Employee Use of CDC Information Technology Resources."

4. You shall not use or permit the use of your Government position or title or any authority associated with your public office in a manner that could reasonably be construed to imply that CDC or the Government sanctions or endorses your outside activity.

5. You must not represent the organization before any Federal agency where the Federal Government has a substantial interest in the matter.

6. You are prohibited from taking any action as a CDC employee that could be perceived as directly and predictably affecting the financial interests of this organization.

8. You must not participate in lobbying activities.
