MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

To the Congress of the United States:

I transmit herewith Reorganization Plan No. 18 of 1950, prepared

in accordance with the provisions of the Reorganization Act of

1949. The plan transfers to the Administrator of General Services

the functions of the various Federal agencies with respect to

leasing and assigning general-purpose space in buildings and the

operation, maintenance, and custody of office buildings. Since such

authority is already largely concentrated in the General Services

Administration with respect to the District of Columbia, the plan

principally relates to the administration of these functions in the

field.

The transfers made by this plan will promote more economical

leasing, better utilization of building space, and more efficient

operation of Government-controlled office buildings. They will

effectuate the recommendations of the Commission on Organization of

the Executive Branch of the Government with respect to

concentrating in the General Services Administration the

responsibility for space allotment and the operation of Government

buildings outside of the District of Columbia. Likewise, they will

extend the principles laid down by the Congress in enacting the

Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 to another

important area of Government-wide administrative services - the

administration of Government office buildings and general-purpose

building space in the field.

Within the District of Columbia, one agency, the Public Buildings

Service of the General Services Administration, has long had the

operation and custody of most Government buildings and the leasing

and assignment of space for executive agencies. Thus, nearly all

requests for building space are handled by a single organization

which is responsible for seeing that agencies are properly and

efficiently housed. This arrangement has proved its worth and has

repeatedly been approved by the Congress.

Outside of the National Capital, however, responsibility for the

acquisition and control of building space and the operation of

Government buildings is widely diffused. A variety of agencies

operate and control general-purpose buildings. If quarters are not

available in Federal buildings, each agency ordinarily does its own

leasing. As a result, in some cases Federal agencies have

contracted for space at high rentals at the very time that other

agencies have been giving up surplus low-cost space.

The assignment of space in Government-owned buildings outside of

Washington is also divided among a number of agencies. While the

Public Buildings Service constructs a large part of the Government

buildings, it operates and controls the assignment of space in only

a small proportion of them. The Post Office Department operates and

allocates the space in post-office buildings, several hundred of

which contain substantial amounts of office space available for

other agencies. During and immediately after the war several other

Federal agencies acquired office buildings in the field. As their

activities have contracted, surplus space in many of these

structures has become available for other uses.

This plan concentrates in the General Services Administration the

responsibility for the leasing and assignment of what is termed

general-purpose building space; that is, space which is suitable

for the uses of a number of Federal agencies. It specifically

excludes space in buildings at military posts, arsenals, navy

yards, and similar defense installations and space in hospitals,

laboratories, factories, and other special-purpose buildings.

Also, the plan excludes the Post Office Department from the

transfer of leasing authority since the Department has a highly

developed organization for this purpose, and it limits the transfer

of space assignment authority in post-office buildings to the space

not occupied by the Department. Further, it gives the needs of the

Post Office Department priority in the assignment of space in

post-office buildings. Thus, the plan amply safeguards the

interests of the Post Office Department while making it possible to

include the general office space in post-office buildings in any

given city with other similar space under Federal control in

planning and executing an efficient program for housing Government

agencies in that area.

In addition, the plan transfers to the General Services

Administration the operation, maintenance, and custody of office

buildings owned or leased by the Government, including those

post-office buildings which are not used predominantly for

post-office purposes. This will make it possible to establish a

single organization for the operation and maintenance of Government

office buildings in principal cities in the field as has proved

desirable in the National Capital. Since many post offices are in

fact primarily large office buildings, the plan includes in this

transfer the post-office buildings which are not used predominantly

for post-office purposes. This will relieve the Post Office

Department of a considerable expenditure for building operation and

maintenance which properly should not be charged against postal

revenues.

While the plan effects a broad transfer of functions with respect

to leasing and assignment of space and the operation and

maintenance of office buildings, it specifically authorizes the

Administrator of General Services to delegate the performance of

any part of these functions to other agencies subject to such

regulations as he deems desirable for economical and effective

administration. In this the plan follows the pattern adopted by the

Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 for other

branches of property management. In large urban centers where

numerous Federal units are located unified administration of space

activities by the General Services Administration will normally be

advantageous. On the other hand, in the smaller communities it will

no doubt be desirable to delegate the work back to the agencies

directly affected, to be carried on under standards laid down by

the Administrator of General Services. The plan provides ample

flexibility for working out the most effective administrative

arrangement for each type of situation.

The fundamental soundness and economy of centralized

administration of building space have been amply demonstrated in

the National Capital. By virtue of unified control it has been

possible since the war to accomplish far-reaching changes which

have consolidated agencies in much fewer locations, released many

of the rented buildings, and greatly reduced the cost of housing

the Government establishment. Similar procedures applied in the

larger centers of field activity should produce substantial

savings.

After investigation, I have found, and hereby declare, that each

reorganization contained in this plan is necessary to accomplish

one or more of the purposes set forth in section 2(a) of the

Reorganization Act of 1949.

While it is not possible at this time to calculate the reduction

in expenditures which will result from this plan, it can safely be

predicted that it will produce substantial savings. I am confident

that this reorganization plan will constitute a significant

improvement in Federal business practice and will bring about an

important increase in efficiency in housing Government agencies.

Harry S Truman.

In subsections (a) and (b), the words "and title III of the

Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 (41 U.S.C.

of the words "this Act", meaning the Federal Property and

Administrative Services Act of 1949. See the revision note under

section 111 of this title. Reference to title V of this Act is

omitted as obsolete because of the Act of October 22, 1968 (Public

Law 90-620, 82 Stat. 1238), the first section of which enacted

Title 44, United States Code. The responsibilities of the

Administrator of General Services under title V were given to the

Archivist of the United States, National Historical Publications

and Records Commission, and Advisory Committee on the Records of

Congress.

In subsection (a), the words "subject to chapters 33 and 51 and

subchapter III of chapter 53 of title 5" are substituted for

"subject to the civil-service and classification laws" because of

section 7(b) of the Act of September 6, 1966 (Public Law 89-554, 80

Stat. 631), the first section of which enacted Title 5, United

States Code.

In subsection (b), the words "under section 3109 of title 5" are

substituted for "(not in excess of one year)" and "or organizations

thereof, including stenographic reporting services, by contract or

appointment, and in such cases such service shall be without regard

to the civil-service and classification laws, and except in the

case of stenographic reporting services by organizations, without

regard to section 5 of title 41" for clarity and to eliminate

unnecessary words.

In subsection (c), the words "section 973 of title 10" are

substituted for "section 1222 of the Revised Statutes (10 U. S. C.

576)" in section 208(c) of the Federal Property and Administrative

Services Act of 1949 because of section 49(b) of the Act of August

10, 1956 (ch. 1041, 70A Stat. 640), the first section of which

enacted Title 10, United States Code, and section 4(a)(5) and (6)

of the Act of January 2, 1968 (Public Law 90-235, 81 Stat. 759).

The words "personnel (including armed services personnel) from an

executive agency other than the General Services Administration"

are substituted for "officials, officers, and other personnel in

other executive agencies, including personnel of the armed

services" for clarity and to eliminate unnecessary words.

In subsection (d), the words "On and after June 23, 1913" are

omitted as obsolete. The word "Administrator" is substituted for

"Secretary of the Treasury" [subsequently changed to "Federal Works

Administrator" because of section 301 of Reorganization Plan No. I

of 1939 (eff. July 1, 1939, 53 Stat. 1426)], and the word

"Administration" [meaning the General Services Administration] is

substituted for "public-buildings service" and "Office of the

Supervising Architect" [subsequently changed to "Public Buildings

Administration" because of section 1 of Executive Order No. 6166

(eff. June 10, 1933) and section 303 of Reorganization Plan No. I

of 1939 (eff. July 1, 1939, 53 Stat. 1427)], because of section

103(a) of the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of

1949 (ch. 288, 63 Stat. 380), which is restated as section 303(c)
