MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

To the Congress of the United States:

I herewith transmit my plan for the Reorganization of the

Executive Office of the President (EOP), Reorganization Plan No. 1

of 1977. This plan is the first of a series I intend to submit

under the reorganization authority vested in me by the

Reorganization Act of 1977 (Public Law 95-17) [5 U.S.C. 901-912].

It adheres to the purposes set forth in Section 901(a) of the Act

[5 U.S.C. 901(a)].

This plan in conjunction with the other steps I am taking will:

Eliminate seven of the seventeen units now within the EOP and

modify the rest. There were 19 units when I took office; the

President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board and the Economic

Policy Board have already been abolished. Thus with this plan I

will have eliminated nine of 19 EOP units.

Reduce EOP staffing by about 250 which includes the White House

staff reduction of 134 or 28 percent which I have already

ordered.

Improve efficiency by centralizing administrative functions;

and

Improve the process by which information is provided for

Presidential decisionmaking.

These recommendations arise from a careful, systematic study of

the EOP. They are based on the premise that the EOP exists to serve

the President and should be structured to meet his needs. They will

reduce waste and cost while improving the service the President,

and the nation, receive from the EOP.

The EOP now consists of the immediate White House Office, the

Vice President’s Office, the Office of Management and Budget, and

fourteen other agencies. The EOP has a budget authority of about

$80,000,000 and 1,712 full time employees.

The White House Office concentrates on close personal support

including policy and political advice and administrative and

operational services. The Office of the Vice President provides

similar support to him. OMB’s primary mission is to develop and

implement the budget; it also carries out a number of management

and reorganization activities.

Three EOP units have responsibility for policy development:

National Security Council.

Domestic Council.

Council on International Economic Policy.

The other 11 are more specialized offices that offer analysis and

advice, help develop policy in certain areas, or carry out special

projects. These are:

Council of Economic Advisers.

Council on Wage and Price Stability.

Office of the Special Representative for Trade Negotiations.

Council on Environmental Quality.

Office of Science and Technology Policy.

Office of Drug Abuse Policy.

Office of Telecommunications Policy.

Intelligence Oversight Board.

Federal Property Council.

Energy Resources Council.

Economic Opportunity Council.

To make the EOP more effective, four steps are necessary:

I. Strengthen management of policy issues.

II. Limit the EOP, wherever possible, to functions directly

related to the President’s work.

III. Centralize administrative services.

IV. Reduce size of White House and EOP staffs.

I. STRENGTHEN PROCESS MANAGEMENT OF POLICY ISSUES

Perhaps the most important function of the President’s staff is

to make sure he has the wide variety of views and facts he needs to

make decisions. By building a more orderly system for collecting

information and advice, the President can make sure that he will

hear all the views he should – and hear them in time. To better

insure that this happens, I am taking the following actions to:

Institute for domestic and economic issues, a system similar to

the Presidential Review Memorandum process currently used for

National Security issues.

Create a committee of Presidential advisers, chaired by the

Vice President, to set priorities among issues and oversee their

staffing.

Assure that Presidential decision memoranda on policy issues

are coordinated with Cabinet and EOP advisers most involved with

the issue.

Consolidate under the Staff Secretary the two current White

House paper circulation systems.

Appoint a group of advisers to review the decisionmaking

process periodically.

Give the Assistant to the President for Domestic Affairs and

Policy clear responsibility for managing the way in which

domestic and most economic policy issues are prepared for

Presidential decision.

Assign follow-up responsibility for Presidential decisions as

follows: immediate follow-up will be handled by the NSC or

Domestic Policy Staff most directly involved in the issue; long

term follow-up on selected issues will be handled by the

Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Relations.

These actions recognize that the White House and Executive Office

staff must use their proximity to the President to insure that the

full resources of the government and the public are brought to bear

on Presidential decisions in a timely fashion. It is my purpose in

instituting these changes to strengthen Cabinet participation in

Presidential decisions.

II. RATIONALIZE EOP STRUCTURE BY LIMITING EOP, WHEREVER POSSIBLE,

TO FUNCTIONS WHICH BEAR A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP TO THE WORK OF THE

PRESIDENT

As the President’s principal staff institution, there are several

major things the EOP must do:

Provide day-to-day operational support (e.g., scheduling,

appointments) and help the President communicate with the public,

the Congress, and the press.

Manage the budget and coordinate Administration positions on

matters before the Congress.

Manage the Presidential decisionmaking processes efficiently

and fairly, and bring the President the widest possible range of

opinions.

Help the President: plan and set priorities; monitor and

evaluate progress toward achieving the President’s objectives;

understand and resolve major conflicts among line subordinates;

manage crises, especially in national security matters.

In order to restructure the EOP around these basic functions, the

functions of seven units should be discontinued or transferred, and

ten units, including the White House Office, should be retained but

modified.

Seven units should be discontinued or their functions

transferred. These are:

1. Office of Drug Abuse Policy.

2. Office of Telecommunications Policy.

3. Council on International Economic Policy.

4. Federal Property Council.

5. Energy Resources Council.

6. Economic Opportunity Council.

7. Domestic Council.

The functions of the Office of Drug Abuse Policy (ODAP) can be

performed by a smaller staff reporting to a Presidential adviser in

the EOP. The Office itself will be discontinued.

Much of the work done by the Office of Telecommunications Policy

(OTP) can be more effectively performed outside the EOP. It is

important that the EOP have the capacity to resolve differences and

that the President have immediate advice on telecommunications and

information policy, especially on national security, emergency

preparedness and privacy issues. This only requires a small staff

within EOP. The Office of Management and Budget would take

responsibility for Federal telecommunications procurement and

management policy and arbitration of interagency disputes about

frequency allocation. All other functions except developing

Presidential policy options would be transferred to a new office

within the Department of Commerce, headed by a new Assistant

Secretary for Communications and Information, who will perform many

of the functions previously performed by the head of the OTP.

I propose that the Economic Opportunity Council be discontinued;

it is dormant and its only active function (preparation of the

Catalogue of Federal Domestic Assistance) is being performed by

OMB. Three other units are also inactive and should be

discontinued: Council on International Economic Policy, the Federal

Property Council, and the Energy Resources Council.

The Domestic Council should be abolished. It has rarely

functioned as a Council, because it is too large and its membership

too diverse to make decisions efficiently. Its functions have been

performed entirely by its staff. This Domestic Policy Staff should

report to the Assistant to the President for Domestic Affairs and

Policy. Under the policy process system described earlier, they

should manage the process which coordinates the making of domestic

and most economic policy. They should work closely with the Cabinet

departments and agencies to insure that the views of the Cabinet

and agency heads are brought to the President before decisions are

made.

The ten EOP units which will continue with some modification are:

1. White House Office.

2. Office of the Vice President.

3. Office of Management and Budget.

4. Council on Environmental Quality.

5. Council of Economic Advisers.

6. Office of Science and Technology Policy.

7. Office of the Special Representative for Trade Negotiations.

8. National Security Council.

9. Intelligence Oversight Board.

10. Council on Wage and Price Stability.

The operations of the Office of the Vice President reflect the

combination of constitutional, statutory, and Presidentially

assigned duties that make it unique among EOP units. Because his

interests and assignments cover the same range as the President’s,

the Vice President requires a staff with expertise in diverse

areas. Its basic functions should not be changed. However, I

propose that certain support functions – involving accounting,

personnel services, and supply – be transferred to a centralized

EOP Administrative Unit.

The Office of Management and Budget would remain as a separate

entity in the EOP, but some functional changes should be made. Four

functions should be transferred from OMB to other parts of the

government:

Administration to the new EOP Central Administrative Unit;

Executive Department/Labor Relations (except for Pay Agent,

Executive Level Pools, and Legislative Analysis) to the Civil

Service Commission;

Advisory Committee Management Secretariat to the General

Services Administration;

Statistical Policy (except Forms Clearance) to the Department

of Commerce.

I have asked the OMB to reorganize its management arm to

emphasize major Presidential initiatives, such as reorganization,

program evaluation, paperwork reduction, and regulatory reform.

The Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) should remain in the

EOP as an environmental adviser to the President. The CEQ’s major

purpose is to provide an independent assessment of our policies for

improving the environment. Toward this end, it will analyze long

term trends and conditions in the environment. It will advise OMB

on the reorganization of natural resources functions within the

Federal government. The Council will retain the functions it now

has under NEPA and Executive Order No. 11514 with the exception of

routine review of the adequacy of impact statements and the

administrative aspects of their receipt and handling. The EPA will

take over CEQ’s evaluation responsibility under the Federal

Nonnuclear Energy Research Development Act of 1974 [section 5901 et

seq. of Title 42, The Public Health and Welfare]. The CEQ will

continue to review and publish the Annual Report on Environmental

Quality.

The strength of the Council of Economic Advisers (CEQ) lies in

its economic analysis of current policy choices. It also presents

objective economic data, makes macroeconomic forecasts, and

analyzes economic trends and their impact on the national economy.

It will continue with a small reduction in staff.

The Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) should retain

those science, engineering, and technology functions which can be

so useful in helping the President and his advisers make decisions

about policy and budget issues. Instead of the Intergovernmental

Science, Engineering, and Technology Advisory Panels, the President

should rely on an intergovernmental relations working group,

chaired by the Science Adviser. The Federal Coordinating Council on

Science and Technology should operate as a sub-Cabinet working

group chaired by the Science Adviser. The reorganization work of

the President’s Committee on Science and Technology would be part

of the overall reorganization effort. The responsibility for

preparing certain reports should be transferred to the National

Science Foundation.

The proposal places manageable limits on OSTP’s broad mandate

while emphasizing functions that support the President.

The Office of the Special Representative for Trade Negotiations

(STR) is now operating effectively and will be retained essentially

as is. With the difficult negotiations now underway in Geneva, the

benefits of transferring the STR to another agency are outweighed

by the potential reduction in its effectiveness as an international

negotiator.

The National Security Council (NSC) will be retained in its

present form and its staff slightly reduced.

Intelligence Oversight Board (IOB) should be retained to insure

that abuses of the past are not repeated and to emphasize

Presidential concerns regarding intelligence issues.

The Council of Wage and Price Stability (COWPS) is a necessary

weapon in the continuing fight against inflation and will be

retained. To be sure that its work is closely coordinated with the

economic analyses performed by the Council of Economic Advisers

(CEA), COWPS should be directed by the Chairman of CEA.

III. CENTRALIZE ADMINISTRATIVE FUNCTIONS

About 380 (22 percent) of the full-time, permanent EOP personnel

perform administrative support services in EOP units. Most EOP

units besides the White House and OMB are too small to provide a

full complement of administrative services. They depend on the

White House, OMB, GSA, other federal departments, or several of

these sources for many of these services. This approach is

inefficient; the quality is uneven and the coordination poor. Some

services are duplicated, others inconsistently distributed (excess

capacity in some units and deficiencies in others), and most too

costly.

I propose to combine administrative support operations into a

Central Administrative Unit in EOP to provide support in

administrative services common to all EOP entities. It should be a

separate EOP entity because of the need to assure equal access by

all other units.

This consolidation will result in:

Saving of roughly 40 positions and about $1.1 million, improved

and more innovative services.

A focus for monitoring the efficiency and responsibility of

administrative services.

A base for an effective EOP budget/planning system through

which the President can manage an integrated EOP rather than a

collection of disparate units.

The EOP has never before been organized as a single, unified

entity serving the President. It is only by viewing it as a whole

that we can improve efficiency through steps like the Central

Administrative Unit.

IV. REDUCE THE SIZE OF WHITE HOUSE AND EOP STAFFS

I am reducing the White House staff by 28 percent, from the 485 I

inherited from my predecessor to 351. This involves cuts in my

policy and administrative staffs as well as transfers to the

Central Administrative Unit.

I estimate that this plan and the other steps I am taking will

reduce staff levels in the EOP by about 250, from 1,712 full-time

permanent positions to about 1,460 and will save the taxpayers at

least $6 million.

As in the rest of the government, I will be reluctant to add

staff unless necessary to help me do my job better.

I ask that you support me in improving the operations of the

Executive Office of the President by approving the attached

reorganization plan.

In summary this plan would:

Abolish the Domestic Council and establish a Domestic Policy

Staff.

Establish within the EOP a Central Administrative Unit.

Transfer certain functions of the Council on Environmental

Quality to the President for redelegation.

Abolish the Office of Drug Abuse Policy and vest functions in

the President for redelegation.

Abolish the Office of Telecommunications Policy and transfer

functions to the Department of Commerce and to the President for

redelegation.

Create an Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications

and Information.

Vest some Office of Science and Technology Policy functions in

the President for redelegation.

Abolish the Economic Opportunity Council and vest those

functions in the President for redelegation.

Transfer the Committee Management Secretariat function of the

Office of Management and Budget to the President for

redelegation.

Make other incidental transfers attendant to those mentioned

above.

Each of the changes set forth in the plan accompanying this

message is necessary to accomplish one or more of the purposes set

forth in Section 901(a) of Title 5 of the United States Code. I

have taken care to determine that all functions abolished by the

plan are done so only under statutory authority provided by Section

903(b) of Title 5 of the United States Code. The provisions in the

plan for the appointment and pay of any head or officer of any

agency have been found by me to be necessary.

As we continue our studies of other parts of the Executive

Branch, we will find more ways to improve services in the EOP and

elsewhere. This plan is only a beginning, but I am confident that

it represents a major step toward a more efficient government that

will serve the needs of the people and the President well.

Ex. Ord. No. 13199, Jan. 29, 2001, 66 F.R. 8499, as amended by

Ex. Ord. No. 13498, Sec. 1, Feb. 5, 2009, 74 F.R. 6533, provided:

By the authority vested in me as President of the United States

by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America,

and in order to help the Federal Government coordinate a national

effort to expand opportunities for faith-based and other community

organizations and to strengthen their capacity to better meet

social needs in America’s communities, it is hereby ordered as

follows:

Section 1. Policy. Faith-based and other neighborhood

organizations are vital to our Nation’s ability to address the

needs of low-income and other underserved persons and communities.

The American people are key drivers of fundamental change in our

country, and few institutions are closer to the people than our

faith-based and other neighborhood organizations. It is critical

that the Federal Government strengthen the ability of such

organizations and other nonprofit providers in our neighborhoods to

deliver services effectively in partnership with Federal, State,

and local governments and with other private organizations, while

preserving our fundamental constitutional commitments guaranteeing

the equal protection of the laws and the free exercise of religion

and forbidding the establishment of religion. The Federal

Government can preserve these fundamental commitments while

empowering faith-based and neighborhood organizations to deliver

vital services in our communities, from providing mentors and

tutors to school children to giving ex-offenders a second chance at

work and a responsible life to ensuring that families are fed. The

Federal Government must also ensure that any organization receiving

taxpayers’ dollars must be held accountable for its performance.

Through rigorous evaluation, and by offering technical assistance,

the Federal Government must ensure that organizations receiving

Federal funds achieve measurable results in furtherance of valid

public purposes.

Sec. 2. Establishment. There is established a White House Office

of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships (Office) within the

Executive Office of the President that will have lead

responsibility in the executive branch to establish policies,

priorities, and objectives for the Federal Government’s

comprehensive effort to enlist, equip, enable, empower, and expand

the work of faith-based and other community organizations to the

extent permitted by law.

Sec. 3. Functions. The principal functions of the Office are, to

the extent permitted by law: (a) to develop, lead, and coordinate

the Administration’s policy agenda affecting faith-based and other

community programs and initiatives, expand the role of such efforts

in communities, and increase their capacity through executive

action, legislation, Federal and private funding, and regulatory

relief;

(b) to ensure that Administration and Federal Government policy

decisions and programs are consistent with the President’s stated

goals with respect to faith-based and other community initiatives;

(c) to ensure that services paid for with Federal Government

funds are provided in a manner consistent with fundamental

constitutional commitments guaranteeing the equal protection of the

laws and the free exercise of religion and prohibiting laws

respecting an establishment of religion;

(d) to promote effective training for persons providing federally

funded social services in faith-based and neighborhood

organizations;

(e) to promote the better use of program evaluation and research,

in order to ensure that organizations deliver services as specified

in grant agreements, contracts, memoranda of understanding, and

other arrangements;

(f) to help integrate the President’s policy agenda affecting

faith-based and other community organizations across the Federal

Government;

(g) to coordinate public education activities designed to

mobilize public support for faith-based and community nonprofit

initiatives through volunteerism, special projects, demonstration

pilots, and public-private partnerships;

(h) to encourage private charitable giving to support faith-based

and community initiatives;

(i) to bring concerns, ideas, and policy options to the President

for assisting, strengthening, and replicating successful faith-

based and other community programs;

(j) to provide policy and legal education to State, local, and

community policymakers and public officials seeking ways to empower

faith-based and other community organizations and to improve the

opportunities, capacity, and expertise of such groups;

(k) to develop and implement strategic initiatives under the

President’s agenda to strengthen the institutions of civil society

and America’s families and communities;

(l) to showcase and herald innovative grassroots nonprofit

organizations and civic initiatives;

(m) to eliminate unnecessary legislative, regulatory, and other

bureaucratic barriers that impede effective faith-based and other

community efforts to solve social problems;

(n) to monitor implementation of the President’s agenda affecting

faith-based and other community organizations; and

(o) to ensure that the efforts of faith-based and other community

organizations meet high standards of excellence and accountability.

Sec. 4. Administration. (a) The Office may function through

established or ad hoc committees, task forces, or interagency

groups.

(b) The Office shall have a staff to be headed by the Special

Assistant to the President and Executive Director of the White

House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships

(Executive Director). The Office shall have such staff and other

assistance, to the extent permitted by law, as may be necessary to

carry out the provisions of this order. The Office operations shall

begin no later than 30 days from the date of this order.

(c) The Office shall coordinate with the liaison and point of

contact designated by each executive department and agency with

respect to this initiative.

(d) All executive departments and agencies (agencies) shall

cooperate with the Office and provide such information, support,

and assistance to the Office as it may request, to the extent

permitted by law.

(e) The agencies’ actions directed by this Executive Order shall

be carried out subject to the availability of appropriations and to

the extent permitted by law.

Sec. 5. Judicial Review. This order does not create any right or

benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or equity by

a party against the United States, its agencies or

instrumentalities, its officers or employees, or any other person.

hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. About 80 percent of Americans live in urban

areas, and the economic health and social vitality of our urban

communities are critically important to the prosperity and quality

of life for Americans. Vibrant cities spawn innovation, economic

growth, and cultural enrichment through the businesses,

universities, and civic, cultural, religious, and nonprofit

institutions they attract. Forward-looking policies that encourage

wise investment and development in our urban areas will create

employment and housing opportunities and make our country more

competitive, prosperous, and strong. In the past, insufficient

attention has been paid to the problems faced by urban areas and to

Government dollars targeted to urban areas are effectively spent on

the highest-impact programs; and

(e) to engage in outreach and work closely with State and local

officials, with nonprofit organizations, and with the private

sector, both in seeking input regarding the development of a

comprehensive urban policy and in ensuring that the implementation

of Federal programs advances the objectives of that policy.

WHITE HOUSE TASK FORCE ON MIDDLE-CLASS WORKING FAMILIES

Memorandum of President of the United States, Jan. 30, 2009, 74

F.R. 5979, provided:

Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies

For many years, middle-class Americans have been working harder,

yet not enjoying their fair share of the fruits of a growing

economy. While the productivity of the American workforce grew

during the decade ending in 2007, middle-income workers saw their

real incomes fall. The current economic situation has exacerbated

the challenges facing middle-class Americans, with health care

coverage, safe and steady employment opportunities, effective and

affordable education, owning a home, and saving for retirement

slipping out of reach. It is a high priority of my Administration

to achieve a secure future for middle-class working families, one

in which they share in prosperous times and are cushioned during

hard times. To these ends, I hereby direct the following:

Section 1. White House Task Force on Middle-Class Working

Families. There is established within the Office of the Vice
