If a debt has been outstanding for more than 10 years after the agency's right to
collect the debt first accrued, the agency may not collect by salary offset unless
facts material to the government's right to collect were not known and could not reasonably
have been known by the official or officials who were charged with the responsibility
for discovery and collection of such debts.
