RELATING TO THE PRESIDENT'S AWARD FOR DISTINGUISHED FEDERAL CIVILIAN SERVICE

By virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and statutes of the United States of America, and as President of the United States of America, the Distinguished Civilian Service Awards Board is hereby abolished and Executive Order No. 10717, as amended, is further amended by deleting Sections 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 and by adding the following new Sections:

"SEC. 3. The Chairman of the United States Civil Service Commission shall advise and assist the President in selecting persons to receive this award. In performing this function, the Chairman shall carefully review nominations submitted pursuant to the provisions of Section 4 of this Order and decide which of them, if any, warrant presentation to the President. The Chairman shall thereupon transmit to the President the names of those persons who, in the opinion of the Chairman, merit the award, together with a statement of the reasons therefor. Recipients for the award shall be selected by the President.

"SEC. 4. The form and procedures for making nominations for this award shall be prescribed by the Chairman of the United States Civil Service Commission, in accord with the following principles:

"(a) The Chairman shall be guided in the performance of this function by the provisions of Section 4504 and 4505 of Title 5 of the United States Code, and by additional criteria which the Chairman may prescribe.

"(b) The Chairman shall not recommend any person for the award without the concurrence of the head of the agency in which that person was employed at the time of the achievement for which the award is recommended.

"(c) Persons appointed by the President are not eligible for this award unless, in the opinion of the Commission, they are currently serving in a career position.".
