MEMORANDUM FOR SEE DISTRIBUTION

SUBJECT: Recruitment and Retention of Civilian Medical Personnel



On 11 October 2002, the Principal Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Force Management delegated the authority to use those authorities relating to hours of work and payment of premium pay under section 7453 (except 7453 (j)), 7454, 7456, and 7457(a) and (b) (enclosure). I delegate this authority to the addressees who may redelegate to the lowest practicable level, but not lower than the commander of a medical or dental treatment facility or equivalent.

The guidance in DoD 1400.25-M, DoD Civilian Personnel Manual, subchapters 540, 541, and 542 will be used to execute these authorities to recruit and retain specified civilian medical personnel.
