Yes, you may consult with federal employees. However, the same such right must be given to all entrants.

Per USC Title 15, Sec. 3719 - Prize competitions:

(h) Consultation with Federal Employees
An individual or entity shall not be deemed ineligible under subsection (g) because the individual or entity used Federal facilities or consulted with Federal employees during a competition if the facilities and employees are made available to all individuals and entities participating in the competition on an equitable basis.
