640 APPROVAL OF AGENCY REGULATIONS
641 Prior Approval
Executive Order 10982 requires prior approval by the Secretary of State of an agency's regulations which implement Chapter 600 of the Standardized Regulations (GC,FA). No agency shall make any payment under 5 U.S.C. 5521-5527 until approval has been received.
642 Approval Procedures
The head of an agency may adopt these regulations without change, but the Secretary of State must be so notified before the requirement for prior approval is satisfied. When an agency proposes to implement regulations that deviate from those provided in this Chapter, prior approval must be obtained from the Secretary of State before implementation.
643 Supplements to Agency Regulations
An agency may issue supplemental instructions so long as they are not inconsistent with approved regulations and prior approval of the Secretary of State has been obtained before implementation.
644 Reimbursement to Other Agencies
If a payment is made to an employee or designated representative by an agency other than his/her own, the amount and date of payment will be immediately reported to the employee's agency and prompt reimbursement will be made.
