Department of Defense


The Department of Defense (DoD) is charged with coordinating and supervising all agencies and functions of the government relating directly to national security and the United States armed forces. The mission of the Department of Defense is to provide the military forces needed to deter war and to protect the security of our country.

The Department of Defense is America's oldest and largest government agency -tracing its roots back to pre-Revolutionary times. Today, the Department is not only in charge of the military, but it also employs a civilian force of thousands. With over 1.4 million men and women on active duty, and 718,000 civilian personnel, DoD is the nation's largest employer. Another 1.1 million serve in the National Guard and Reserve forces. More than 2 million military retirees and their family members receive benefits.

Perhaps you are working for the DoD or interested in working for the DoD. Here is a forum to share your experience with the DoD.

Does anyone know if there is a specific length of time that management can keep you on Admin Duty while they conduct an investigation of wrongdoing/misconduct? I have searched and searched and cannot find any rules or regulations in regards to this. Thanks in advance!

The only correct answer is "as long is reasonable per the facts of the case being investigated."

Allegation of abuse of the travel card? Not too long to figure out if it occurred or not.

Sexual Assault and other criminal acts....could be a while.

It used to be that you could be put on admin leave for ever, but that was changed in the 2017 NDAA as described on fedsmith https://www.fedsmith.com...ies-established-congress and works as frankgonzalez mentions now-a-days.
