Department of the Army

32 CFR Part 513

Indebtedness of Military Personnel

AGENCY: Department of the Army, DoD.

ACTION: Final rule; removal.


SUMMARY: This action removes regulations concerning indebtedness of 
military personnel. The regulations are being removed because they are 
obsolete and no longer govern policies and procedures for handling debt 
claims against soldiers. These rules in the Army Regulation have been 
superseded. Program responsibility has been transferred to the Defense 
Finance and Accounting Services (DFAS), which directs all policy for 
personnel finances across the services. The removal of the regulations 
is part of DoD's retrospective plan under Executive Order 13563 
completed in August 2011.

DATES: Effective July 22, 2013.

ADDRESSES: Department of the Army, Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff, 
G-1, DAPE-HR, 200 Army Pentagon, Washington, DC 20310-0300.
    DoD's full retrospective plan under E.O. 13563 can be accessed at: 

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Cheryl Moman, (703) 325-0050.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The responsibility for this program was 
originally with the Department of the Army and was published as 32 CFR 
Part 513. The program responsibility was transferred to DFAS and now 
covered by Department of Defense policy and guidance codified at 32 CFR 
Part 112, ``Indebtedness of Military Personnel,'' and DoD Financial 
Management Review (FMR), Volume 7a, ``Stoppages and Collections.'' 
Therefore, to avoid confusion with the public, 32 CFR Part 513 is 
removed, which was established in the Federal Register, March 3, 1986 
(51 FR 7268). Rules in the Army Regulation have been superseded by 
Department of Defense (DoD) policy and guidance covered in DoD 
Instruction 1344.09, ``Indebtedness of Military Personnel,'' \1\ and 
codified at 32 CFR Part 112, and DoD Financial Management Review (FMR), 
Volume 7a, ``Stoppages and Collections.'' \2\
