(1) Whether the employee is responsible for matters affecting the potential donor that are currently before the agency; and
(2) The significance of the employee's role in any such matters;
(b) The nature and sensitivity of any matters pending at the Commission affecting the intended donor;
(c) The timing of the intended gift;
(d) The market value of the intended gift;
(e) The frequency of other gifts made by the same donor; and
(f) The reason underlying the intended gift given in a written statement from the proposed donor.
