- Full Report:
The impact of Reorganization Plan No. 1 of 1977 on the funds, functions, and personnel of the Executive Office of the President was examined. As of March 1978, there were 14 units in the Executive Office instead of the 21 that existed in early 1977 and the 19 that were in effect when the plan was sent to Congress. Full-time permanent positions are being reduced by 244, 9 less than needed to meet the goal of 1,459. This reduction is to be made by abolishing 188 positions, transferring 56 positions to agencies outside the Executive Office, and through attrition. Transfers totaled 196 permanent positions and 185 personnel. Of these, 32 positions and 23 personnel were moved out of the Executive Office. Appropriated funds of $4.8 million have been transferred, with $0.9 million reallocated to agencies outside the Executive Office. The Reorganization Plan did not cover nonpermanent positions (detailees from other agencies and part-time employees), but 16 part-time employees have moved within the Executive Office.
