REALIGNMENT OF THE OFFICE OF ETHICS

1. INTRODUCTION

The purpose of this Memorandum is to implement the realignment of reporting lines for the Office of Ethics (OE).  Effective immediately, supervision of OE is transferred from the Office of Human Resources Management (OHRM) under Departmental Management to the General Counsel.  This realignment supports the Executive Branch “best practice” of housing the ethics function within each Cabinet-level Department’s legal office.
