ADMINISTRATIVE MEMORANDUM NO.
The conditions under which staff members may assign their parking
permits and privileges to other staff members under Article E(4)(f) of the
Parking Regulations at Headquarters require clarification and
The Secretary General has authorized the Assistant Secretary for
Management to modify Article E(4)(f) of the Parking Regulations at
Headquarters (implemented by Administrative Memorandum No. 83), as
(f) A staff member who has been assigned a Parking Permit under the
foregoing provisions of these Parking Regulations and who is absent from
Headquarters on official travel or on leave (with or without pay) for a
period of no less than three weeks, but not to exceed six months (“the
Assignor”), may request that the Department of Material Resources
temporarily assign that Parking Permit during that absence to another
staff member designated by name (“the Assignee”).
All such requests shall be submitted directly to the Department of
Material Resources, and shall be accompanied by the approved official
documentation verifying the Assignor’s absence on official travel or
leave. The Department of
Material Resources will process and decide upon those requests from
Memorial Day to Labor Day, and the Parking Committee will process and
decide upon them during the rest of the year. When such a request is approved:
(i) the Assignor shall remain responsible for the payment of the
parking fee, together with any and all fines and penalties assessed
against the Assignee or any other holder of the permit for parking
violations under Part H of these Parking Regulations; (ii) the Parking
Permit shall be displayed in the vehicle of the Assignee; (iii) the
Assignee shall be obligated to comply with these Parking Regulations in
full; and (iv) the Parking Permit shall be for the exclusive use of the
Assignee, who may not sub-assign it to another.
Any request for extending the period of temporary assignment must
be submitted to the Department of Material Resources, together with the
corresponding official documentation verifying the extended official
travel or leave of the Assignor, for decision by that Department or the
Parking Committee, as the case may be.
This Administrative Memorandum supersedes any contrary provision,
regulation, or practice of thee General Secretariat.
Entry into Force
This Administrative Memorandum shall enter into force on the date
it is signed.
