Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The conflict of interest policy prevents current government employees and officers from being vendors, but it has no provision about retirees. Here is the NY State Comptroller's Conflict of Interest guideline: http://www.osc.state.ny.us/localgov/pubs/conflictinterest.pdf
The only prohibition would be a current employee or officer could not be involved in contracts. If the retiree is a member of the SBGA but is no longer a government/municipal employee or officer, the policy would not apply.
