Each type of ethics action will trigger a corresponding level of involvement by Headquarters. The continuum of Headquarters involvement with Center actions ranges from general guidance to Headquarters action.
General guidance is the lowest level of Headquarters involvement in Center ethics actions. Headquarters may provide guidance for the resolution of an action. Centers may request general guidance from Headquarters on an action. Center ethics officials, as defined in Appendix A, follow Headquarters guidance, but are not normally required to involve Headquarters in specific matters. Centers should consult with Headquarters on specific cases when the sensitivity of the matter warrants it or when Headquarters' expertise or perspective is needed.
Centers shall route or send a copy of written opinions and determinations to Headquarters after the opinions are issued.
Centers shall provide notice to Headquarters sufficiently in advance to allow meaningful input prior to the Center taking any final action on the matter. Depending on the circumstances, verbal coordination may be sufficient.
Centers shall obtain prior written concurrence from Headquarters.
Headquarters has the lead responsibility and signature authority for the action.
