Claims Against the United States

1. PURPOSE

This revised regulation prescribes procedures for handling claims against the United States pursuant to the Federal Tort Claims Act, Military Personnel and Civilian Employees’ Claims Act, and 31 U.S.C. § 3723, which arise from Department of Agriculture programs and activities. It does not set procedures for claims that must be handled under statutes granting authority to specific agencies. The regulation is revised to adjust the responsibilities for determining, settling, and paying claims submitted under the Federal Tort Claims Act, to update procedures for handling claims under the Military Personnel and Civilian Employees’ Claims Act, and to update authorities and references throughout the regulation.

2. CANCELLATION

Departmental Regulation 2510-001, Claims Against the United States, dated January 25, 1995, is cancelled.
