Article 24


Section 1. General

The Department will adhere to all Government-wide and Departmental rules and

Section 2. Scheduling Travel

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

and in accordance with law and Government regulations, Management will

consider employees’ personal needs with respect to scheduling travel, and

Management will not ordinarily require travel on the weekends for activities

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

arrange for travel of employees to occur within each employee’s standard

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

may not be paid overtime under 5 CFR 550.112(e), the official shall record

his reasons for ordering travel at those hours and shall, upon request,

furnish a copy of his statement to the employee concerned.

d. When travel results from an event which cannot be scheduled or controlled

administratively, such travel may be considered hours of employment for

Section 4. Use of Privately Owned Vehicles

a. When use of an employee’s privately owned vehicle (POV) is authorized as

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.
