The investigation substantiated that a TVA employee negotiated employment with a contractor for whom he approved invoices; however, he did so with the knowledge and apparent support of TVA management. After becoming an employee of the contractor, he continued to approve invoices for the contractor (now his employer) as he had done while employed by TVA. While working for the Contractor, the subject potentially had direct access to the sensitive business information of vendors in direct competition with the employing contractor. The employee did not consult TVA Ethics for guidance on this matter while still employed by TVA.
