Report of Investigation: Mr. Anthony A. Aldwell Former Senior Executive Service and Mr. Steven L. Schleien Senior Executive Service

We initiated this investigation to address allegations that Mr. Anthony A. Aldwell, then a Senior Executive Service (SES) member serving as the Chief Operating Officer (COO), Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy (OUSD-Policy), and Mr. Steven L. Schleien, SES, Deputy COO (DCOO), OUSD-Policy: failed to use the required acquisition process to procure tailored training; endorsed the Intergovernmental Personnel Act (IPA) application of an individual who was not eligible for the program; and improperly secured salary increases for two IPAs.

If substantiated, such conduct would violate Title 5, United States Code, Section 3372
(5 U.S.C. 3372) IPA “General provisions”; DoD 5500.7-R, “Joint Ethics Regulation (JER)”; and DoD 7000.14-R, “Financial Management Regulation (FMR).”
