A couple of weird things happened on this procurement - the RCO Director of Contracting position coming open mid protest of the LRS-B award, and now Lombardi's late disclosure of what at least has the appearance of an ethics violation.
It must be nice to be a GS-15 or SES, (or running for president for that matter) and to have a whole different set of rules to play by. I once had to recuse myself on a procurement that was only worth a few thousand dollars (including 4 option years) for translation services because I was still a member of a foreign language journal / organization that was connected to a prospective bidder. This included documentation etc.
There is literally ZERO excuse for not having disclosed something like this, especially for someone in the acquisition profession. Everyone takes annual training on ethics and the public trust, and is well aware of how much even the appearance of wrong doing can affect procurement and cost taxpayers money.
Maybe I'm just mad because our OGE 450s were due today...

No, if they choose Boeing can file in court now since it was revealed that officials in the acquisition office had an account with Northrop. Whether they do is the question.
