dence. The avoidance of misconduct
and conflicts of interest on the part of
Government employees and special Gov-
ernment employees through informed
judgment is indispensable to the main-
tenance of these standards. To accord
with these concepts, this part sets forth
the Department’s regulations prescrib-
ing standards of conduct and responsi-
bilities, and governing statements of

Subpart B—Copduct and Responsibil-
ities of Employees
§ 6735-201 Basie‘principle.

(a) Each employee must realize that
the--Government’s basic and controlling
purpose in employing him is the public
interest, rather than his private or per-
sonal interest, and that he can never
have a right of tenure that transcends
the public good. He can properly be a
Government employee only as long as it
remains in the public interest for him
to be one. Public trust and confidence
in the integrity of the Government are

(b) (1) This basic principle applies
with special force and effect in the De-
partment of Housing and Urban Develop-
ment, which deals directly with impor-
tant segments of the public, and whose
success depends upon public trust and
confidence in its actions. The official
actions of the Department often-have a
direct bearing upon the financial and
other interests of individuals, firms, and
institutions with which it does business.
Furthermore, the effective accomplish-
mient of the Department’s mNsion is sig-
nificantly dependefit upon a public image
that engenders confidence in the Depart-
ment’s integrity. Accordingly, the avoid-
ance of any involvement that tends to
damage that image is a responsibility of
exceptional importance for all employees
who participate in or influence official
operating determinations that affect the
interests of those with whom the Depart-
ment does business.

(2) If there is knowledge of an em-
ployee’s involvement in or association
with circumstances reasonably construed
to reduce public confidence in the acts
or determinations of the Department,
such knowledge may be sufficient cause
for the initiation of action adverse to
the employee. Employees, therefore, are
alerted to the gravity with avhich the
Department will view. any such involve-
ment, especially if it has to do with con-
flicts of interest or the compromise of
integrity—whether real or only apparent.
