APPENDIX A

Memorandum for Director of the Army Staff

DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY

WASHINGTON, D.C.

22 March 1985

MEMORANDUM FOR DIRECTOR OF THE ARMY STAFF

SUBJECT: Need for Strong Disciplinary Measures to Help Combat Fraud, Waste and Abuse

It is essential that strong and effective measures be applied, consistent with applicable law and regulation, to those individuals who are found to have engaged in theft, fraud, or other intentionally dishonest conduct against the Army.

Service members who engage in this type of misconduct are already subject to punishment under applicable provisions of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and to adverse personnel actions.

Effective with the promulgation of Army Regulation 690-700, Chapter 751, it is the policy of the Army that any civilian employee found to have engaged in theft, fraud, or other intentionally dishonest conduct against the Army will be considered for removal from the federal service. Any lesser penalty will require justifiable mitigating circumstances. It is the duty of all supervisors to ensure that this policy is implemented.

This strong disciplinary posture is a necessary element in the Army's campaign against fraud, waste, and abuse. The vast majority of our civilian employees are honest, hard working, and fully aware of their fiduciary responsibilities to the public. We must assure that they are not required to tolerate or work with those who will not live up to this public trust.

This policy should be given the widest possible dissemination throughout the Army.

 

JOHN A. WICKHAM, JR. John. Marsh, Jr.
