By virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution, by section 1753 of the Revised States (5 U. S. C. 631), by the Civil Service Act of January 16, 1883 (22 Stat. 403), and as President of the United States, it is hereby ordered as follows, effective May 1, 1947:

PART I - ORGANIZATION FOR PERSONNEL ADMINISTRATION

Organization for personnel administration in the executive branch of the Federal Government is hereby prescribed as follows:

§ 01.1 Responsibility for personnel management. Personnel management is primarily the responsibility of all who plan, direct, or supervise the work of Federal employees. Personnel management methods should be consistent for the Government as a single employer and yet be sufficiently flexible to meet the diversified conditions in the Federal service.

§ 01.2 Civil Service Commission responsibilities under this order. (a) The Commission shall be responsible to the President for the proper application of the Civil Service Act and Rules, the Veterans' Preference Act, and all other applicable statues and Executive orders imposing responsibilities on the Commission.

(b) The Commission shall exercise and provide leadership in personnel matters throughout the Federal service, and in the discharge of this responsibility shall whenever practicable, consult Federal agencies.

(c) The Commission shall develop and promulgate standards, applicable to the competitive service and designed to protect and promote its efficiency, for the reinstatement or reemployment of former Federal employees, and for the promotion, demotion, reassignment, and transfer of present employees. The Commission shall also define the restoration rights of persons who left the Federal service to enter the armed forces of the Untied States in such a manner as to give full effect to section 8 of the Selective Training and Service Act.

(d) The Commission shall prescribe procedures to be followed by agencies in connection with removals, demotions and suspension in the competitive service which will insure equitable and uniform treatment to employees against whom adverse action is proposed.

(e) The Commission shall, when consistent with law and with the economical and efficient management of the Government, delegate to the agencies its authority to act in personnel matters in accordance with standards issued by the Commission.

(f) The Commission shall maintain and adequate system of inspection to determine that equitable and sound application of statutes, Executive orders, regulations and standards relating to personnel management is being carried out by the agencies. Whenever the inspection indicates failure on the part of an agency to adhere to established policies, regulations and standards, the Commission shall take such action as may be appropriate to bring about adherence thereto. In this connection, the Commission may suspend or revoke any delegation of its authority.

(g) The Commission shall in the exercise of its personnel functions give all practicable assistance to international organization in which the United States participates, to the Puerto Rico civil service board, and to such Federal, Territorial, State, or local agencies shall request its cooperation and offer like cooperation, including, when appropriate, the sharing of any necessary expenses. Under such regulations as may be jointly agreed upon, the Commission shall conduct or join with such agencies in conducting examinations or other personnel functions. In its discretion, the Commission may certify eligibles from appropriate registers maintained by the Puerto Rico civil service board, Federal or Territorial boards, or civil service boards of State and local agencies, if such boards agree, and the Commission finds that the requirement of law concerning appointments to the competitive service have been met. If such boards so desire, they may, upon agreement with the Commission, certify eligibles from the appropriate registers maintained by the Commission.

§01.3 Agency responsibilities for personnel management. (a) The head of each agency, in accordance with applicable statutes, Executive orders, and rules shall be responsible for personnel management in his agency. To assist and advise him in carrying out this responsibility he shall maintain or establish such office or division of personnel as may be required. He shall designate a director of personnel or other similarly responsible official to be in charge of such office or division. Such director or other official shall represent the head of the agency in personnel matters, subject to his instructions.

(b) The head of each agency shall provide for the cooperation of his agency with the Civil Service Commission in the conduct of personnel matters.

(c) Authority for the conduct of personnel matters within each agency should be delegated to the extent compatible with provisions of law and with economical and efficient administration to those officials responsible for planning, directing, and supervising the work of others. The exercise of such delegated authority shall be subject to policies, rules, regulations and standards established by the head of the agency, and shall be subject to appropriate review and inspection.

(d) The head of each agency shall remove, demote, ore reassign to other position any employee in the competitive service whose conduct or capacity is such that his removal, demotion or reassignment will promote the efficiency of the service.

§01.4 Committees of expert examiners and boards of examiners. (a) In order to promote the effective recruitment and placement of persons for the Federal service, the departmental and field service resources of the Federal agencies may be utilized to the extent permitted by law. After consulting the agency or agencies concerned, the Commission may establish in the departmental service committees of examiners, expert in their respective fields, for scientific, professional, or technical positions, and in the field service, boards of examiners for any position. If such a position is peculiar to any agency, the committee or board shall be composed of not less than three qualified officers or employees of the agency concerned. If such a position exists in more than one agency, the committee or board shall be composed of not less than three qualified officers or employees of the agencies concerned.

(b) The work of the committees or boards referred to in this section shall be under the direction and supervision of the Commission in connection with the execution of the Civil Service Act, Rules, and Regulations.

(c) The duties performed by the members of such committees or boards shall be considered part of their official duties and adequate time shall be allowed for their performance by the agency in which they are employed.

(d) Where qualified examiners are not readily available in the Federal service, and to the extent permitted by law, the Commission or the agency concerned may designate and compensate individuals outside the service especially qualified by experience and training to serve as examiners.

§01.5 Federal Personnel Council. (a) The Council of Personnel Administration shall hereafter be known as the Federal Personnel Council and shall be continued with the Civil Service Commission.

(b) The membership of the Council shall consist of a chairman, the director of personnel or official responsible for personnel matters in each agency subject to the Civil Service Rules, one additional member designated by the Director of the Bureau of the Budget, and such additional member or members as the Commission shall designate.

(c) The Chairman of the Council shall be appointed by the Civil Service Commission after consultation with the Council and shall serve as a member of the staff of the Commission.

(d) The purpose of the Council, functioning as an advisory body, shall be to promote through study and discussion the application, interpretation, and development of personnel policies and practices. Its findings and recommendations shall be submitted to the Commission and may be submitted to the President or to other Federal agencies.

(e) Where there are substantial concentrations of Federal agencies in a geographical area, subsidiary councils may be established and maintained as recommended by the Council and approved by the Commission. The membership of such councils shall consist of the heads of field establishments in such areas or their designated representatives and of the designated representatives of the commission.
