have been focused successfully focused on environmental justice and it appears these are efforts will continue into the future. 5. Describe the ethical decision-making process the agency must navigate when making decisions that may benefit some at the expense or risk of others. The United States Office of Government Ethics (OGE) conducted a review of the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) ethics program in 2013. The review indicated that HUD’s ethics program appears to be effectively administered and in compliance with applicable laws, regulations, and policies. The OGE highlighted several areas of accomplishment: Ethics and Appeals Division (EAD) conducts self-assessment surveys to measure the effectiveness of the agency’s ethics program. The agency has actively promoted annual ethics training to encourage agency-wide attendance. HUD’s supplemental ethics training facilitates the promotion of an ethical culture at the agency. The agency requires departing employees to consult with the ethics officials in-person as part of the exit process. The OGE also noted areas that could improve in the ethical decision-making processes at HUD as: Develop a process to ensure financial disclosure reports are assessed for retention and destroyed when appropriate. Develop a plan to improve the timeliness of filing and certification of confidential financial disclosure reports. Develop a plan to ensure that all new employees receive initial ethics orientation within 90 days of employment. Develop a plan to escalate instances where filers have not confirmed training attendance

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
