Ms. Debra Sanford Office of Workers Compensation Programs 200 Constitution Avenue, NW - Room S3229 Washington, DC 20210
Dear Ms. Sanford:
I am forwarding the following claim from [claimant] to you, based on conversations with Ms. Virginia Klein within your organization. [Claimant's] claim was forwarded to my office after it was determined that he holds a civilian position contingent upon his being a uniformed member of the [state] National Guard ([acronym]). My office is responsible for reviewing and adjudicating all claims related to compensation and leave for civilian positions.
[Claimant] is requesting continuation of pay payable incident to an injury that he received on April 7, 1999. Ms. Klein and I have informally discussed [claimant's] case on several occasions. We have determined that it may be in his best interest to forward his claim to the Office of Workers Compensation Program for adjudication.
Once you have rendered a decision on [claimant's] claim, please forward a copy to me for our records. You may send the copy to:
U.S. Office of Personnel Management Office of Merit Systems Oversight and Effectiveness 1900 E Street, NW Room 7671 Washington, DC 20415
If I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to call me. I can be reached on (202) 606-2530. Let me also say that Ms. Klein has been very helpful and patient in working with me to determine the best approach for [claimant's] claim and I greatly appreciate her assistance.
Melissa A. Drummond Program Manager
