Federal Manager's Daily Report

The DoD Standards of Conduct Office has updated its “Encyclopedia of Ethical Failure,” which while presented tongue in cheek emphasizes how federal front-line and management employees commonly run afoul of ethics policies.

Cases it highlighted involving civilian DoD employees include: a credit card program manager obtaining and using credit cards using fake names of employees of the agency; an employee who made false statements regarding financial interests in a company whose services he promoted within the agency; a job applicant who did not disclose on a security clearance application that he had been fired during the prior five years by another employer; and false billings to an FEHB health plan for pharmaceutical and medical services not obtained.
