  1. References:
    1. 10 U.S.C. 3016(b)(2).
    2. Headquarters, Department of the Army General Orders No. 3, Assignment of Functions and Responsibilities Within Headquarters, Department of the Army, dated July 9, 2002.
    3. Delegation of Civilian Human Resources Authorities - Version 01-2011, dated 21 April 2011, SAMR-CQ (hereby rescinded).
    4. Civilian Human Resources Authority Delegation Number 27, Appointment Authority for Certain Health Care Professionals, dated June 27, 2011.
  2. As I update or otherwise modify my delegations of civilian human resources authorities, I will execute, publish and transmit them to you in sequentially numbered versions of this memorandum and its accompanying matrix. Each successive version of these documents will republish all delegations that remain in force and will rescind all prior versions of those delegations. It is incumbent on you to ensure that you are exercising any authority that I may delegate to you in accordance with the most current version of these documents. This memorandum and the enclosed matrix comprise the second and most current version of my delegations of civilian human resources authorities.
  3. Through this memorandum and its accompanying matrix, I hereby reaffirm Civilian Human Resources Authorities Delegations Numbers 1-26 and issue Civilian Human Resources Authority Delegation Number 27, Appointment Authority for Certain Health Care Professionals (reference 1d). The authorities set forth in Delegations Numbers 1-27 are delegated to commanders of Army Commands, Army Service Component Commands, Direct Reporting Units and the Administrative Assistant of the Secretary of the Army, as specified in the accompanying matrix dated July 1, 2011. For purposes of these delegations, the Principal Officials of the Headquarters, Department of the Army, their staffs and other elements, Field Operating Agencies and Staff Support Agencies not specifically named as delegates fall under the purview of the Administrative Assistant to the Secretary of the Army. These delegations are effective immediately and expire as stated in the accompanying matrix, unless earlier suspended, revoked or superseded by me.
  4. This memorandum rescinds Delegation of Civilian Human Resources Authorities - Version 01-2011 (reference 1c), and its accompanying matrix. Existing instructions and guidance issued by the Assistant G-1 for Civilian Personnel remain in effect unless expressly modified or rescinded. Additionally, I hereby authorize and direct the Assistant G-1 for Civilian Personnel to continue to issue and update implementing guidance and instructions pertaining to these civilian human resources authorities as may be necessitated by changes in rule, law, regulation or guidance issued by superior authority.
  5. As to all delegations set forth in the accompanying matrix, unless expressly prohibited or restricted by law, directive, regulation, or policy, or as set forth herein, a delegate may further delegate authority in writing to other Department of the Army officials as provided in the relevant portion of the accompanying matrix. Further delegation may be expressly restricted or conditioned, but will be effective only when it is in writing, signed by the official delegating the authority and has been determined not to be legally objectionable upon review by legal counsel. I will hold the delegates identified in the accompanying matrix responsible for any and all actions taken pursuant to these delegations or any further delegations thereof. Should conditions warrant, responsible officials should suspend the use of and/or rescind further delegation of the authority, as appropriate.
  6. This memorandum and its accompanying matrix are not a complete compilation of personnel authorities I have delegated or will delegate; certain such authorities have been or will be delegated separately.
  7. To the extent this memorandum or the accompanying matrix impacts employees' conditions of employment, activities are reminded to meet their collective bargaining obligations in its implementation.
