DECISION

January 23, 1998

_____

Before the Authority: Phyllis N. Segal, Chair; Donald S. Wasserman and Dale Cabaniss, Members.

This matter is before the Authority on an exception to an award of Arbitrator Joseph W. Lipowski filed by the Agency under section 7122(a) of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute (the Statute) and part 2425 of the Authority's Regulations. The Union did not file an opposition to the Agency's exception.

Under section 7122(a) of the Statute, an award is deficient if it is contrary to any law, rule, or regulation; or is deficient on other grounds similar to those applied by Federal courts in private sector labor-management relations. Upon careful consideration of the entire record in this case, the Authority concludes that the award is not deficient on any of the grounds raised in the exception and set forth in section 7122(a).

The Agency's exception is denied.
