An administrative investigation found that a VA Learning University Senior Official falsified an Optional Form 306 (OF306) as part of his VA employment when he failed to disclose pertinent information, including a proposed removal and subsequent mutual agreement associated with his former Federal employment. In addition, VA management officials failed to follow VA policy when they did not conduct pre-employment checks on the Senior Official prior to appointing him to a senior leader position; the Senior Official failed to follow requirements related to official travel; and he misused his position when he forwarded a fraternity brother’s resume to a VA contractor doing business within VALU.
