Prohibited Communications during Contracting

I saw on the web that Miami-Dade has a "cone of silence" rule (love the name), which prohibits contact with government personnel including elected officials while contract solicitation responses are under evaluation.

I would like to hear from or about any other cities that have communication restrictions rules regarding the contract selection process, and any challenges against such rules. Thanks.
