Ethics Investigation

Roche was cited for ethics violations regarding the Air Force's decision to lease KC-767 tanker aircraft.[1]

In 2003, during the Air Force’s deliberations concerning the replacement of KC-135 aircraft, Ms. Robin Cleveland, Associate Director of National Security Programs, OMB, emailed Dr. Roche asking his assistance in gaining employment with Northrup Grumman (for which he had once been a senior executive) after she left her position with the government. Dr. Roche did so and replied to Ms. Cleveland telling her so. This was a DoD ethics violation. The investigation found that Roche had ‘misused his office for public gain’ and used government communications to do so, but made no recommendations for action.[2]

US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld chose not to pursue the matter.
