If you are planning to separate from a HUD facility during the furlough, you are responsible for returning Federal property that has been assigned to you. Return of property will alleviate any unnecessary delays when transferring to a new Federal agency, and the release of your final salary paycheck and lump sum annual leave if applicable. To receive instructions on how to return such property HQ separating employees should contact Nelson.R.Bregon@hud.gov and field office separating employees should contact Lisa.Surplus@hud.gov or firstname.lastname@example.org. All property must be in good working condition.
