Office of the General Counsel


The Honorable Orrin G. HatchUnited States Senator
1006 Federal Building 324 25th Street
Ogden, UT 84401

Attention: Norma Holmgren

Dear Senator Hatch:

We refer to correspondence dated June 23, 1997, from your constituent [XXX] of [city, state]. [XXX] has requested your assistance in having leave restored which she accumulated prior to her transfer on August 26, 1984, from the [agency #1] to the [agency #2] in [city, state]. Unfortunately, [XXX] waited more than six years before presenting her claim. As a consequence, [XXX] claim is barred. We have enclosed a copy of our decision.

However, as noted in our decision, the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C.  552a(f)(4), entitles [XXX] to request that her leave records be amended regardless of the amount of time that has transpired. [XXX] should send her Privacy Act request to the following address:

P.O. Box 182317 Columbus, OH 43218
Attention: John Graham

We thank you for your interest in this matter and hope that this information will be of assistance to you and to your constituent.


Paul Britner

Senior Attorney
