Inspection of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Professional Research or Teaching Leave
In March 1999, while conducting other Inspection work, the Department of Energy, Office of Inspector General determined that officials at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (Livermore) had authorized and paid 24 months of “Professional Research or Teaching Leave” for two Livermore employees. These employees were research scholars at a local area university during this 24 month period. Professional Research or Teaching Leave is defined as leave to promote the continuing professional growth and competence of employees.
