DOJ Telework Policy
2013 USA Budget Request
DOJ issues Telework policy. Each DOJ component is given wide discretion on implementing telework.
NAAUSA Use of U.S. Attorney\'s Office Space
The FY 2013 budget request for the U.S. Attorneys Offices is $1.974 million and 5,566 attorneys. The budget request is just .7 percent above the FY 2012 enacted amount of $1.960 million. The increase is insufficient to cover annual increases in costs.
DOJ Report on Security of Federal Prosecutors
USAP 3-14.000.002 provides guidance and establishes procedures for responding to requests for use of EOUSA and USAO facilities by non-federal entities, including NAAUSA.
In accordance with Section 401 of the Court Security Improvement Act of 2007, Pub. L. No. 110-177, DOJ submitted a report on the security of AUSAs and other federal attorneys arising from the prosecution of terrorists, violent criminal gangs, drug traffickers, gun traffickers, white supremacists, those who commit fraud, and white collar and other criminal offenders.
EOUSA Student Loan Repayment Program
APPLICATION OF 18 U.S.C. § 205 TO COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN NAAUSA and DOJ
In 2008, NAAUSA surveyed Delegates on their experience with the DOJ Student Loan Repayment Program. As a result of the survey responses, NAAUSA made a number of recommendations to EOUSA to improve AUSA eligibility and access to the program. As a result, for the first time, there is a DOJ Student Loan Repayment Program for AUSAs.
Section 205 does not preclude several other kinds of communications between the Department and NAAUSA or similar associations. The Department is not precluded from dealing with individual AUSAs or groups of AUSAs in their official capacities on matters affecting AUSAs, even if those AUSAs are coincidentally members of NAAUSA. Nor does section 205 place any restrictions on representatives who are not current federal employees, such as NAAUSA's executive director or former AUSAs no longer employed by the government. Finally, discussions of broad policy directed towards a large and diverse group of persons would be permissible under the statute.
