a. Consistent with Management’s right to assign work and direct employees

b. Management agrees, if administratively controllable, to schedule and

workweek, to the extent practicable.

c. Insofar as practicable, travel during non-duty hours shall not be required of

an employee. When it is essential that this be required and the employee

advantageous to the Government, the employee shall be reimbursed at the

mileage rate in effect at the time of the travel.

b. No employee shall be required to use his or her POV in the course of

business unless such use was made a formal condition of employment.

Section 5. Use of Government vehicles

a. When Government vehicles are authorized for use for official travel on

successive days, with supervisory approval employees may be permitted to

keep the car overnight.

b. Employees shall be responsible for any additional cost resulting from

unauthorized use of a Government vehicle and may be subject to

administrative and/or criminal liability for misuse of Government property.
