MEMORANDUM FOR DISTRIBUTION
SUBJECT: Army Regulation (AR) 600-85 Change #3 Includes Nonappropriated
Fund (NAF) Positions
Reference AR 600-85 Change 3 dated April 26, 1999, and Department of Defense Directive 1010.9 Change 1 dated January 20, 1992.
Subject change to the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Control Program (ADAPCP) regulation was effective April 26, 1999. This change revises the provisions of the regulation pertaining to the relationship between the ADAPCP program and disciplinary and adverse actions. The change also expands the Army's Drug-Free Federal Workplace Drug Testing Program. This change may be downloaded from the following website address http://books.army.mil/cgi-bin/bookmgr/BOOKS/R600_85/CHANGES.
Special attention must be made to the portion of the change that effects the expansion of the Army's Drug-Free Federal Workplace Drug Testing Program. The change removed language that identified specific jobs by title/series/grade and replaced the specific language with a more generic definition. Several NAF positions could fall under these expanded definitions and therefore, included in the pool of testing designated positions (TDPs).
Installations should review their collective bargaining agreements, where applicable, to determine if there are any locally negotiated obligations associated with implementing changes to bargaining unit members' conditions of employment. Identifying the TDPs is a reserved management right subject only to impact and implementation bargaining. The elimination of the regulatory requirement to hold disciplinary/performance-based actions in abeyance pending completion of the ADAPCP program is substantively negotiable.
