Sec. 4701. Congressional findings and declaration of policy

-STATUTE-

The Congress hereby finds and declares -

That effective State and local governmental institutions are

essential in the maintenance and development of the Federal system

in an increasingly complex and interdependent society.

That, since numerous governmental activities administered by the

State and local governments are related to national purpose and are

financed in part by Federal funds, a national interest exists in a

high caliber of public service in State and local governments.

That the quality of public service at all levels of government

can be improved by the development of systems of personnel

administration consistent with such merit principles as -

(1) recruiting, selecting, and advancing employees on the basis

of their relative ability, knowledge, and skills, including open

consideration of qualified applicants for initial appointment;

(2) providing equitable and adequate compensation;

(3) training employees, as needed, to assure high-quality

performance;

(4) retaining employees on the basis of the adequacy of their

performance, correcting inadequate performance, and separating

employees whose inadequate performance cannot be corrected;

(5) assuring fair treatment of applicants and employees in all

aspects of personnel administration without regard to political

affiliation, race, color, national origin, sex, or religious

creed and with proper regard for their privacy and constitutional

rights as citizens; and

(6) assuring that employees are protected against coercion for

partisan political purposes and are prohibited from using their

official authority for the purpose of interfering with or

affecting the result of an election or a nomination for office.

That Federal financial and technical assistance to State and

local governments for strengthening their personnel administration

in a manner consistent with these principles is in the national

interest.

Sec. 4723. Local government programs and grants

-STATUTE-

(a) Population served; amount of grants; executive certification;

State grant, conditions

The Office is authorized to make grants to a general local

government, or a combination of general local governments, that

serve a population of fifty thousand or more, for up to 75 per

centum (or, with respect to fiscal years commencing after the

expiration of three years following the effective date of the grant

provisions of this chapter, for up to 50 per centum) of the costs

of developing and carrying out programs or projects, on the

certification of the mayor(s), or chief executive officer(s), of

the general local government or combination of local governments

that the programs or projects are consistent with the applicable

principles set forth in clauses (1)-(6) of the third paragraph of

section 4701 of this title, to strengthen the personnel

administration of such governments. Such a grant may not be made -

(1) if, at the time of submission of an application, the State

concerned has an approved plan which, with the agreement of the

particular local government concerned, provides for strengthening

one or more aspects of personnel administration in that local

government, unless the local government concerned has problems

which are not met by the previously approved plan and for which,

with the agreement of the State government concerned with respect

to those aspects of personnel administration covered in the

approved plan, it is submitting an application; or

(2) after the State concerned has a statewide plan which has

been developed by an appropriate State agency designated or

established pursuant to State law which provides such agency with

adequate authority, administrative organization, and staffing to

develop and administer such a statewide plan, and to provide

technical assistance and other appropriate support in carrying

out the local components of the plan, and which provides

procedures insuring adequate involvement of officials of affected

local governments in the development and administration of such a

statewide plan, unless the local government concerned has

special, unique, or urgent problems which are not met by the

approved statewide plan and for which it submits an application

for funds to be distributed under section 4766(a) of this title.

Upon the request of a Governor or chief executive authority, a

grant to a general local government or combination of such

governments in that State may not be made during a period not to

exceed ninety days commencing with the date provided in section

4772 of this title, or the date on which official regulations for

this chapter are promulgated, whichever date is later: Provided,

That the request of the Governor or chief executive authority

indicates that he is developing a plan under (1) above, or during a

period not to exceed one hundred and eighty days commencing with

the date provided in section 4772 of this title, or the date on

which official regulations for this chapter are promulgated,

whichever date is later, provided the request of the Governor or

chief executive authority indicates that he is developing a

statewide plan under (2) above.

(b) Application; time of making; information; terms and conditions;

waiver; development costs; population served

An application for a grant from a general local government or a

combination of general local governments shall be made at such time

or times and shall contain such information as the Office may

prescribe. The Office may make a grant under subsection (a) of this

section only if the application therefor meets requirements similar

to those established in section 4722(b) of this title for a State

application for a grant, unless any such requirement is

specifically waived by the Office, and the requirements of

subsection (c) of this section. Such a grant may cover the costs of

developing the program or project covered by the application. The

Office may make grants to general local governments, or

combinations of such governments, that serve a population of less

than fifty thousand, if it finds that such grants will help meet

essential needs in programs or projects of national interest and

will assist general local governments experiencing special problems

in personnel administration related to such programs or projects.

(c) Gubernatorial review of application; disapproval explanation

An application to be submitted to the Office under subsection (b)

of this section shall first be submitted by the general local

government or combination of such governments to the Governor for

review, comments, and recommendations. The Governor may refer the

application to the State office designated under section 4722(b)(1)

of this title for review. Comments and recommendations (if any)

made as a result of the review, and a statement by the general

local government or combination of such governments that it has

considered the comments and recommendations of the Governor shall

accompany the application to the Office. The application need not

be accompanied by the comments and recommendations of the Governor

if the general local government or combination of such governments

certifies to the Office that the application has been before the

Governor for review and comment for a period of sixty days without

comment by the Governor. An explanation in writing shall be sent to

the Governor of a State by the Office whenever the Office does not

concur with recommendations of the Governor in approving any local

government applications.

Sec. 4743. Grants to State and local governments for training

-STATUTE-

(a) Amount of grants; executive certification; use restrictions;

uses for non-Federal share; personnel training and education

programs: innovation and diversity in development and execution

If in its judgment training is not adequately provided for under

grant-in-aid or other statutes, the Office is authorized to make

grants to State and general local governments for up to 75 per

centum (or, with respect to fiscal years commencing after the

expiration of three years following the effective date of the grant

provisions of this chapter, for up to 50 per centum) of the costs

of developing and carrying out programs, on the certification of

the Governor of that State, or the mayor or chief executive officer

of the general local government, that the programs are consistent

with the applicable principles set forth in clauses (1)-(6) of the

third paragraph of section 4701 of this title, to train and educate

their professional, administrative, and technical employees and

officials. Such grants may not be used to cover costs of full-time

graduate-level study, provided for in section 4745 of this title,

or the costs of the construction or acquisition of training

facilities. The State and local government share of the cost of

developing and carrying out training and education plans and

programs may include, but shall not consist solely of, the

reasonable value of facilities and of supervisory and other

personal services made available by such governments. The authority

provided by this section shall be employed in such a manner as to

encourage innovation and allow for diversity on the part of State

and local governments in developing and carrying out training and

education programs for their personnel.

(b) Application; time of making; information; terms and conditions;

waiver; development costs

An application for a grant from a State or general local

government shall be made at such time or times, and shall contain

such information, as the Office may prescribe. The Office may make

a grant under subsection (a) of this section, only if the

application therefor meets requirements established by this

subsection unless any requirement is specifically waived by the

Office. Such grant to a State, or to a general local government

under subsection (c) of this section, may cover the costs of

developing the program covered by the application. The program

covered by the application shall -

(1) provide for designation, by the Governor or chief executive

authority, of the State office that will have primary authority

and responsibility for the development and administration of the

program at the State level;

(2) provide, to the extent feasible, for coordination with

relevant training available under or supported by other Federal

Government programs or grants;

(3) provide for training needs of the State government and of

local governments in that State;

(4) provide, to the extent feasible, for intergovernmental

cooperation in employee training matters, especially within

metropolitan or regional areas; and

(5) provide assurance that the making of a Federal Government

grant will not result in a reduction in relevant State or local

government expenditures or the substitution of Federal funds for

State or local funds previously made available for these

purposes.

(c) Population served; amount of grants; executive certification;

State grant, conditions; terms and conditions; waiver

A grant authorized by subsection (a) of this section may be made

to a general local government, or a combination of such

governments, that serve a population of fifty thousand or more, for

up to 75 per centum (or, with respect to fiscal years commencing

after the expiration of three years following the effective date of

the grant provisions of this chapter, for up to 50 per centum) of

the costs of developing and carrying out programs or projects, on

the certification of the mayor(s), or chief executive officer(s),

of the general local government or combination of local governments

that the programs or projects are consistent with the applicable

principles set forth in clauses (1)-(6) of the third paragraph of

section 4701 of this title to train and educate their professional,

administrative, and technical employees and officials. Such a grant

may not be made -

(1) if, at the time of submission of an application, the State

concerned has an approved plan which, with the agreement of the

particular local government concerned, provides for strengthening

one or more aspects of training in that local government, unless

the local government concerned has problems which are not met by

the previously approved plan and for which, with the agreement of

the State government concerned with respect to those aspects of

training covered in the approved plan, it is submitting an

application; or

(2) after the State concerned has a statewide plan which has

been developed by an appropriate State agency designated or

established pursuant to State law which provides such agency with

adequate authority, administrative organization, and staffing to

develop and administer such a statewide plan, and to provide

technical assistance and other appropriate support in carrying

out the local components of the plan, and which provides

procedures insuring adequate involvement of officials of affected

local governments in the development and administration of such a

statewide plan, unless the local government concerned has

special, unique, or urgent problems which are not met by the

approved statewide plan and for which it submits an application

for funds to be distributed under section 4766(a) of this title.

Upon the request of a Governor or chief executive authority, a

grant to a general local government or combination of such

governments in that State may not be made during a period not to

exceed ninety days commencing with the date provided in section

4772 of this title, or the date on which official regulations for

this chapter are promulgated, whichever date is later: Provided,

That the request of the Governor or chief executive authority

indicates that he is developing a plan under (1) above, or during a

period not to exceed one hundred and eighty days commencing with

the date provided in section 4772 of this title, or the date on

which official regulations for this chapter are promulgated,

whichever date is later, provided the request of the Governor or

chief executive authority indicates that he is developing a

statewide plan under (2) above. To be approved, an application for

a grant under this subsection must meet requirements similar to

those established in subsection (b) of this section for State

applications, unless any such requirement is specifically waived by

the Office, and the requirements of subsection (d) of this section.

The Office may make grants to general local governments, or

combinations of such governments that serve a population of less

than fifty thousand if it finds that such grants will help meet

essential needs in programs or projects of national interest and

will assist general local governments experiencing special needs

for personnel training and education related to such programs or

projects.

(d) Gubernatorial review of application; disapproval explanation

An application to be submitted to the Office under subsection (c)

of this section shall first be submitted by the general local

government or combination of such governments to the Governor for

review, comments, and recommendations. The Governor may refer the

application to the State office designated under subsection (b)(1)

of this section for review. Comments and recommendations (if any)

made as a result of the review and a statement by the general local

government or combination of such governments that it has

considered the comments and recommendations of the Governor shall

accompany the application to the Office. The application need not

be accompanied by the comments and recommendations of the Governor

if the general local government or combination of such governments

certifies to the Office that the application has been before the

Governor for review and comment for a period of sixty days without

comment by the Governor. An explanation in writing shall be sent to

the Governor of a State by the Office whenever the Office does not

concur with recommendations of the Governor in approving any local

government applications.

Sec. 4766. Distribution of grants

-STATUTE-

(a) State and local government allocations; equitable distribution

The Office shall allocate 20 per centum of the total amount

available for grants under this chapter in such manner as will most

nearly provide an equitable distribution of the grants among States

and between State and local governments, taking into consideration

such factors as the size of the population, number of employees

affected, the urgency of the programs or projects, the need for

funds to carry out the purposes of this chapter, and the potential

of the governmental jurisdictions concerned to use the funds most

effectively.

(b) Weighted formula; minimum allocation; reallocation; "State"

defined

(1) The Office shall allocate 80 per centum of the total amount

available for grants under this chapter among the States on a

weighted formula taking into consideration such factors as the size

of population and the number of State and local government

employees affected.

(2) The amount allocated for each State under paragraph (1) of

this subsection shall be further allocated by the Office to meet

the needs of both the State government and the local governments

within the State on a weighted formula taking into consideration

such factors as the number of State and local government employees

and the amount of State and local government expenditures. The

Office shall determine the categories of employees and expenditures

to be included or excluded, as the case may be, in the number of

employees and amount of expenditures. The minimum allocation for

meeting needs of local governments in each State (other than the

District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam,

American Samoa, and the Virgin Islands) shall be 50 per centum of

the amount allocated for the State under paragraph (1) of this

subsection.

(3) The amount of any allocation under paragraph (2) of this

subsection which the Office determines, on the basis of information

available to it, will not be used to meet needs for which allocated

shall be available for use to meet the needs of the State

government or local governments in that State, as the case may be,

on such date or dates as the Office may fix.

(4) The amount allocated for any State under paragraph (1) of

this subsection which the Office determines, on the basis of

information available to it, will not be used shall be available

for reallocation by the Office from time to time, on such date or

dates as it may fix, among other States with respect to which such

a determination has not been made, in accordance with the formula

set forth in paragraph (1) of this subsection, but with such amount

for any of such other States being reduced to the extent it exceeds

the sum the Office estimates said State needs and will be able to

use; and the total of such reductions shall be similarly

reallocated among the States whose proportionate amounts were not

so reduced.

(5) For the purposes of this subsection, "State" means the

several States of the United States, the District of Columbia, the

Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, and the Virgin

Islands.

(c) Payment limitation

Notwithstanding the other provisions of this section, the total

of the payments from the appropriations for any fiscal year under

this chapter made with respect to programs or projects in any one

State may not exceed an amount equal to 12 1/2 per centum of such

appropriation.
