As United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Deputy General Counsel and Designated Agency Ethics Official, Arnie Haiman was in charge of, and personally instructed rank-and-file employees as well as senior managers here and abroad, including military personnel, on Ethics, EEO, and Diversity programs. This training included the mandatory No FEAR (Notification and Federal Employee Anti-Discrimination and Retaliation Act) training. Mr. Haiman developed and implemented USAID’s unique ethics training program. The centerpiece of the program is “Ethical Decision Making” seminars, in which work units discuss not only legal requirements, but also the “right” ethics decisions, based on shared values. This approach is of particular value given the multiple cultural settings in which USAID operates. Other agencies have solicited his help in establishing their own programs, and he has repeatedly been invited to share his expertise with foreign governments and international non-governmental institutions. Arnie has been a featured speaker at the International Anti-Corruption Conferences in Prague and Brisbane, U.S. Office of Government Ethics Conferences, Association of Government Accountants, Federal Bar Association, Federal Executive Institute, Office of Personnel Management, Management Seminar Center, and Ethics and Compliance Officers Association and has been a frequent guest on Fed Talk radio programs.

Among the honors he has received are the Presidential Rank Award and the Meritorious Service Medal.
