[. . .] Business-Managed Democracy. (2011). The Heritage Foundation. Retrieved

The Heritage Foundation promotes a talent bank of potential candidates for positions in official places within the governmental administration, and bases its maintenance of this program on the idea that placing people of influence who are aligned with the Heritage Foundation will increase their influence substantially. A major function and focus of the Heritage Foundation and dozens of conservative think tanks has been the creation of a new professional cadre. " Not only have the dozens of conservative think tanks created a framework for disseminating ideas that exist largely outside of established infrastructure of academic journals, university presses, and commercial publishing…they have also designated career vehicles for conservative activist and thinkers" ("Heritage Foundation," 2011). This resource is of value to the proposed study as unabashedly demonstrates the practice of revolving door between think tanks and the governmental positions with the authority to sponsor college and university students and promising junior bureaucrats a place to meet, socialize, network, and job hunt. Through these efforts, the Heritage foundation "seeks to nurture a new generation of conservative leaders within their ranks" ("Heritage Foundation," 2011)..

Associated Press Notes About the 111th Congress.

This document is a listing of facts and figures spanning a wide variety of topics and information about members of Congress. Application is limited as sources are not identified, nor does the document contain any references.

Carey, M.P. And Hogue, H.B. (2011, April 20). Presidential Appointments to Full-Time Positions in Independent and Other Agencies During the 110th Congress.

This paper examines the nomination and appointment process for positions in independent and other types of agencies, and particularly examines the length of time between the nominations and confirmation. The relevance of this content to the topic of revolving door policy is the discussion about the power that Senators wield with regard to providing advice to the President about selection of appointees. It should be noted that Senators have delayed or effectively blocked the consideration of a nomination if they believe that pre-nomination consultation has been insufficient.

Cheatham, C.S. (2010, November 18). Ethics Developments in the U.S. Congress since 1958: Selected Resources. The Judge Ben C. Green Law Library, Case Western Reserve University School of Law.

Triggered by a Congressional hearing to determine if evidence against two Democratic Senators is sufficiently clear and convincing to charge them with gross violations of standards, this is a comprehensive chronology of laws and Congressional rules related to ethics and conflict of interest of members of Congress and federal employees. This compilation is particularly relevant to the topic of revolving door policies as it illustrates the evolution of the regulations and the steady progression toward more specific and more constraining regulations.

DOD Revolving Door Processes Have Improved but Post-Employment Reporting Still Low. (1989, September). United States General Accounting Office.

This report was a response to Congressional Requestors for the GAO to review the Department of Defense's (DOD) revolving door disclosure system as required under 10 U.S.C. 2397, and pertaining to the responsibilities of individuals to report, and DOD's review and enforcement functions. The report was issued to the Secretaries of Defense in the Army, Navy, and Air Force, the Director of the Office of management and Budget, the Director of the Office of Government Ethics, and other interested parties. This report is relevant to the topic of revolving door policies as the DOD has substantial involvement with procurement and contractors who are in a position to conduct transactions that would violate laws prohibiting revolving door activities.
