DA-12-04-92: OGE is in the Process of Amending the Ethics Training Regulation

December 4, 1992

MEMORANDUM FOR DESIGNATED AGENCY ETHICS OFFICIALS;

FROM: STUART C. GILMAN ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR FOR EDUCATION

SUBJECT: OGE is in the Process of Amending the Ethics Training Regulation.

OGE is in the process of amending the regulation on Executive Agency Ethics Training Programs (57 Federal Register 11886-11891 (April 7, 1992)) to provide that the initial ethics orientation will not have to be completed until February 3, 1993. Although ยง 2638.703 (a) and (b) of the regulation cites January 2, 1993, this date is being changed to February 3 to reflect the publication of the Standards of Ethical Conduct.

In addition, the regulation (as explained last April in the preamble) is now being amended to include the new Standards of Ethical Conduct among the initial ethics orientation materials and as part of the minimum requirements for annual ethics training. OGE expects to publish these revisions in the Federal Register next week.

If you have any questions about the extension or the training plans please call Cecilia Owens or Jennifer Russell of my staff at (202)523-5757, extension 1118 or 1111 respectively.
