NRC Time and Property

The standards of conduct (5 CFR 2635.704-.705) require employees to use official time in an honest effort to perform official duties and to protect and conserve Government property. Employees cannot use Government property, including the charge card and vehicles, for an unofficial purpose without authorization. However, employees may use NRC information technology, such as telephones, computers, the Internet, e-mail, photocopiers, or fax machines, for some unofficial purposes that do not interfere with official operations, involve minimal or no additional expense to the Government, and are conducted on non-work time. (The policies on this limited use are contained in Management Directive 2.7).
