The development and implementation of standards of conduct in the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) were reviewed.

Standards of conduct for Federal employees in HEW do not provide sufficient guidance to enable employees and supervisors to identify and resolve potential ethical problems. The standards are incomplete, complex, and out-of-date. As a result, employees are not always aware of their responsibilities, and a supervisor's advise is often a personal interpretation of the HEW Standards of Conduct regulation.
