(3) Active duty regular officers of the Navy and Marine Corpsman
not be employed by any person furnishing naval supplies or war materials
to the United States. If such an officer is so employed, his entitlement to pay
ceases for so long as he is so employed.
(4) Off-duty employment of military personnel by an entity
involved in a strike is permissible if the person was on the payroll of the
entity before the commencement of this instruction. After a strike begins and
while it continues, no military personnel may accept employment by that in-
volved entity at the strike location.
(5) Naval personnel are encouraged to engage in teaching,
lecturing, and writing. Naval personnel, however, must not, either for or
without compensation, engage in activities that are dependent on informa-
tion obtained as a result of their government employment, except when the
information has been published or is generally available to the public, or it
will be made generally available to the public and the official authorized to
release such information to the public gives written authorization for the use
of nonpublic information on the basis that the use is in the public interest.
(6) Civilian Presidential appointees in the Department of the Navy
must not receive compensation or anything of monetary value for any
consultation, lecture, discussion, writing, or appearance, the subject matter
of which is devoted substantially to naval responsibilities, programs, or opera-
tions or which draws substantially from official material which has not become
part of the body of public information.
n. Gambling, betting, and lotteries. While on government-owned,
leased, or controlled property, otherwise while on duty for the government,
naval personnel must not participate in any gambling activity, including a
lottery or pool, a game for money or property, or the sale or purchase of
a number slip or ticket. The only exceptions are for activities which have been
specifically approved by the Secretary of the Navy.
o. Indebtedness. Naval personnel must pay their just financial obliga-
tion in a timely manner, particularly those imposed by laws (such as federal,
state and local taxes), so that their indebtedness does not adversely affect the
government as their employer. The Department of the Navy is not required
to determine the validity or amount of disputed debts.

c. Commanding officers and heads of activities. The basic responsibility
for complying with the requirements of this instruction rests with individual
personnel concerned, but the primary responsibility for ensuring such com-
pliance must rest with officers exercising command or similar authority over
personnel. Each commanding officer or head of a command, bureau, office,
or activity is specifically responsible for the following:
(1) The continuing dissemination of the applicable information in
this instruction to all naval personnel within his organization at least semi-
annually, in a manner which will ensure familiarity and compliance with the
pertinent provisions of this instruction by all personnel. (This is a continuing
requirement and is in addition to the initial briefing required by paragraph 10.)
(2) The establishment and continuing execution of the procedures
and controls prescribed in paragraph 9, below, to ensure that each position
is reviewed as required by paragraph 9j that all naval personnel within his
organization who are required to file confidential statements of affiliations
and financial interests (DD Form 1555) do file them in a timely manner and
that such statements are promptly and carefully reviewed.
