I'm not sure if I'm an employee of a government owned entity by IBM's definition.

Government Owned Entity employees include any officer or employee of (i) a government (including a foreign government) or any department, agency, public enterprise or instrumentality thereof, (ii) a public international organization, or any person acting in an official capacity for or on behalf of any such government, department, agency, public enterprise or instrumentality, or for or on behalf of any such public international organization, and (iii) any private company which is owned by, controlled by or under common control with any of the entities in (i) or (ii) above and (iv) any entity subject to the applicable country's public procurement laws and regulations. Typically GOE employees consist of: all public entities, associations, bodies, organizations and foundations and any department, agency, whether regional, national, international (e.g. United Nations), federal, state, local or municipal in nature; public schools, utilities, organizations licensed to provide public services, governmental corporations, and other publicly-owned or controlled economic entities. Privately owned and controlled public service organizations such as private schools, private utility companies, private hospitals and private research institutes are not GOE employees; and, U.S. Federal employees, which are more specifically defined as: (i) the executive, legislative and judicial branches of the U.S. Federal government, (ii) U.S. Government-affiliated corporations (e.g., Tennessee Valley Authority), (iii) quasi-governmental organizations (e.g., The Smithsonian Institution), (iv) U.S. Government-sponsored international organizations (e.g., World Bank), and (v) commercial business enterprises operating under a U.S. Federal government power of attorney, or with Management Operating Contractor (MOC) status.
