California Government Code

Sec. § 8880.60


No member of the commission shall, for a two-year period after the end of the member’s term, accept any consideration from, whether directly or indirectly, and shall not accept any employment with, whether as an employee, independent contractor, or consultant, any lottery contractor successful in a major procurement whose contract award was subject to formal approval by the commission. No director shall accept any consideration from, whether directly or indirectly, and shall not accept any employment with, whether as an employee, independent contractor, or consultant, any lottery contractor successful in a major procurement for a period of two years commencing on the last day that the director is employed by the lottery. No other lottery employee involved in the evaluation of or recommendation to award a major procurement shall accept any consideration from, or employment with, any lottery contractor successful in that procurement for a period of one year commencing on the last day that the person is employed by the lottery. In the event that the director, any member of the commission, or other lottery employee violates this subdivision, the commission may terminate the contract between the lottery and the lottery contractor for the major procurement. The Attorney General shall investigate the facts surrounding the violation and shall recommend to the commission any appropriate civil remedies which the lottery has against the lottery contractor, member of the commission, director, or other lottery employee due to the violation, including, but not limited to, action to terminate the lottery contractor’s contract where appropriate.
For purposes of this subdivision, “major procurement” means any procurement of materials, supplies, services, or equipment other than those common to the ordinary operations of state agencies.
The prohibitions imposed by this section shall not apply to any person who left government service prior to September 28, 1987, except that a person who returns to government service on or after that date shall thereafter be covered thereby.
