In this 60 minute broadcast, OGE's lead instructors will address the key distinctions between agency gift acceptance authorities, such as 31 USC § 1353, and personal gift acceptance authorities, such as the exception for widely attended gatherings (WAG). Participants will analyze a scenario to determine how each of these authorities (and others) might apply.

This session is designed as an advanced application of regulations pertaining to gifts from outside sources.
