SEC. 5. INCIDENTAL TRANSFERS

The Secretary of the Interior may from time to time effect such

records, property, personnel, and unexpended balances (available or

to be made available) of appropriations, allocations, and other

funds of such Department as he may deem necessary in order to carry

out the provisions of this reorganization plan.

MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT

To the Congress of the United States:

I transmit herewith Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1950, prepared

in accordance with the Reorganization Act of 1949 and providing for

reorganizations in the Department of the Interior. My reasons for

transmitting this plan are stated in an accompanying general

message.

After investigation I have found and hereby declare that each

reorganization included in Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1950 is

necessary to accomplish one or more of the purposes set forth in

section 2(a) of the Reorganization Act of 1949.

I have found and hereby declare that it is necessary to include

in the accompanying reorganization plan, by reason of

reorganizations made thereby, provisions for the appointment and

compensation of an Assistant Secretary of the Interior and an

Administrative Assistant Secretary of the Interior. The rate of

compensation fixed for these officers is that which I have found to

prevail in respect of comparable officers in the executive branch

of the Government.

The taking effect of the reorganizations included in this plan

may not in itself result in substantial immediate savings. However,

many benefits in improved operations are probable during the next

years which will result in a reduction in expenditures as compared

with those that would be otherwise necessary. An itemization of

these reductions in advance of actual experience under this plan is

not practicable.

Harry S. Truman.

EX. ORD. NO. 12906. COORDINATING GEOGRAPHIC DATA ACQUISITION AND

ACCESS: THE NATIONAL SPATIAL DATA INFRASTRUCTURE

Ex. Ord. No. 12906, Apr. 11, 1994, 59 F.R. 17671, as amended by

Ex. Ord. No. 13286, Sec. 25, Feb. 28, 2003, 68 F.R. 10624,

provided:

Geographic information is critical to promote economic

development, improve our stewardship of natural resources, and

protect the environment. Modern technology now permits improved

acquisition, distribution, and utilization of geographic (or

geospatial) data and mapping. The National Performance Review has

recommended that the executive branch develop, in cooperation with

State, local, and tribal governments, and the private sector, a

coordinated National Spatial Data Infrastructure to support public

and private sector applications of geospatial data in such areas as

transportation, community development, agriculture, emergency

response, environmental management, and information technology.

NOW, THEREFORE, by the authority vested in me as President by the

Constitution and the laws of the United States of America; and to

implement the recommendations of the National Performance Review;

to advance the goals of the National Information Infrastructure;

and to avoid wasteful duplication of effort and promote effective

and economical management of resources by Federal, State, local,

and tribal governments, it is ordered as follows:

Section 1. DEFINITIONS. (a) "National Spatial Data

Infrastructure" ("NSDI") means the technology, policies, standards,

and human resources necessary to acquire, process, store,

distribute, and improve utilization of geospatial data.

(b) "Geospatial data" means information that identifies the

geographic location and characteristics of natural or constructed

features and boundaries on the earth. This information may be

derived from, among other things, remote sensing, mapping, and

surveying technologies. Statistical data may be included in this

definition at the discretion of the collecting agency.

(c) The "National Geospatial Data Clearinghouse" means a

distributed network of geospatial data producers, managers, and

users linked electronically.

Sec. 2. EXECUTIVE BRANCH LEADERSHIP FOR DEVELOPMENT OF THE

COORDINATED NATIONAL SPATIAL DATA INFRASTRUCTURE. (a) The Federal

Geographic Data Committee ("FGDC"), established by the Office of

Management and Budget ("OMB") Circular No. A-16 ("Coordination of

Surveying, Mapping, and Related Spatial Data Activities") and

chaired by the Secretary of the Department of the Interior

("Secretary") or the Secretary's designee, shall coordinate the

Federal Government's development of the NSDI.

(b) Each member agency shall ensure that its representative on

the FGDC holds a policy-level position.

(c) Executive branch departments and agencies ("agencies") that

have an interest in the development of the NSDI are encouraged to

join the FGDC.

(d) This Executive order is intended to strengthen and enhance

the general policies described in OMB Circular No. A-16. Each

agency shall meet its respective responsibilities under OMB

Circular No. A-16.

(e) The FGDC shall seek to involve State, local, and tribal

governments in the development and implementation of the

initiatives contained in this order. The FGDC shall utilize the

expertise of academia, the private sector, professional societies,

and others as necessary to aid in the development and

implementation of the objectives of this order.

Sec. 3. DEVELOPMENT OF A NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL DATA CLEARINGHOUSE.

(a) Establishing a National Geospatial Data Clearinghouse. The

Secretary, through the FGDC, and in consultation with, as

appropriate, State, local, and tribal governments and other

affected parties, shall take steps within 6 months of the date of

this order, to establish an electronic National Geospatial Data

Clearinghouse ("Clearinghouse") for the NSDI. The Clearinghouse

shall be compatible with the National Information Infrastructure to

enable integration with that effort.

(b) Standardized Documentation of Data. Beginning 9 months from

the date of this order, each agency shall document all new

geospatial data it collects or produces, either directly or

indirectly, using the standard under development by the FGDC, and

make that standardized documentation electronically accessible to

the Clearinghouse network. Within 1 year of the date of this order,

agencies shall adopt a schedule, developed in consultation with the

FGDC, for documenting, to the extent practicable, geospatial data

previously collected or produced, either directly or indirectly,

and making that data documentation electronically accessible to the

Clearinghouse network.

(c) Public Access to Geospatial Data. Within 1 year of the date

of this order, each agency shall adopt a plan, in consultation with

the FGDC, establishing procedures to make geospatial data available

to the public, to the extent permitted by law, current policies,

and relevant OMB circulars, including OMB Circular No. A-130

("Management of Federal Information Resources") and any

implementing bulletins.

(d) Agency Utilization of the Clearinghouse. Within 1 year of the

date of this order, each agency shall adopt internal procedures to

ensure that the agency accesses the Clearinghouse before it expends

Federal funds to collect or produce new geospatial data, to

determine whether the information has already been collected by

others, or whether cooperative efforts to obtain the data are

possible.

(e) Funding. The Department of the Interior shall provide funding

for the Clearinghouse to cover the initial prototype testing,

standards development, and monitoring of the performance of the

Clearinghouse. Agencies shall continue to fund their respective

programs that collect and produce geospatial data; such data is

then to be made part of the Clearinghouse for wider accessibility.

Sec. 4. DATA STANDARDS ACTIVITIES. (a) General FGDC

Responsibility. The FGDC shall develop standards for implementing

the NSDI, in consultation and cooperation with State, local, and

tribal governments, the private and academic sectors, and, to the

extent feasible, the international community, consistent with OMB

Circular No. A-119 ("Federal Participation in the Development and

Use of Voluntary Standards"), and other applicable law and

policies.

(b) Standards for Which Agencies Have Specific Responsibilities.

Agencies assigned responsibilities for data categories by OMB

Circular No. A-16 shall develop, through the FGDC, standards for

those data categories, so as to ensure that the data produced by

all agencies are compatible.

(c) Other Standards. The FGDC may from time to time identify and

develop, through its member agencies, and to the extent permitted

by law, other standards necessary to achieve the objectives of this

order. The FGDC will promote the use of such standards and, as

appropriate, such standards shall be submitted to the Department of

Commerce for consideration as Federal Information Processing

Standards. Those standards shall apply to geospatial data as

defined in section 1 of this order.

(d) Agency Adherence to Standards. Federal agencies collecting or

producing geospatial data, either directly or indirectly (e.g.

through grants, partnerships, or contracts with other entities),

shall ensure, prior to obligating funds for such activities, that

data will be collected in a manner that meets all relevant

standards adopted through the FGDC process.

Sec. 5. NATIONAL DIGITAL GEOSPATIAL DATA FRAMEWORK. In

consultation with State, local, and tribal governments and within 9

months of the date of this order, the FGDC shall submit a plan and

schedule to OMB for completing the initial implementation of a

national digital geospatial data framework ("framework") by January

2000 and for establishing a process of ongoing data maintenance.

The framework shall include geospatial data that are significant,

in the determination of the FGDC, to a broad variety of users

within any geographic area or nationwide. At a minimum, the plan

shall address how the initial transportation, hydrology, and

boundary elements of the framework might be completed by January

1998 in order to support the decennial census of 2000.

Sec. 6. PARTNERSHIPS FOR DATA ACQUISITION. The Secretary, under

the auspices of the FGDC, and within 9 months of the date of this

order, shall develop, to the extent permitted by law, strategies

for maximizing cooperative participatory efforts with State, local,

and tribal governments, the private sector, and other nonfederal

organizations to share costs and improve efficiencies of acquiring

geospatial data consistent with this order.

Sec. 7. SCOPE. (a) For the purposes of this order, the term

"agency" shall have the same meaning as the term "Executive agency"

in 5 U.S.C. 105, and shall include the military departments and

components of the Department of Defense.

(b) The following activities are exempt from compliance with this

order:

(i) national security-related activities of the Department of

Defense as determined by the Secretary of Defense;

(ii) national defense-related activities of the Department of

Energy as determined by the Secretary of Energy;

(iii) intelligence activities as determined by the Director of

of Homeland Security as determined by the Secretary of Homeland

Security.

(c) The NSDI may involve the mapping, charting, and geodesy

activities of the Department of Defense relating to foreign areas,

as determined by the Secretary of Defense.

(d) This order does not impose any requirements on tribal

governments.

(e) Nothing in the order shall be construed to contravene the

development of Federal Information Processing Standards and

Guidelines adopted and promulgated under the provisions of section

111(d) of the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of

1949 [former 40 U.S.C. 759(d)], as amended by the Computer Security

Act of 1987 (Public Law 100-235), or any other United States law,

"(2) the Congress has specified the duties and responsibilities

"(5) expansion of the contracting authority of the managers of

these conservation areas, parks, wildlife refuges, and lands

Trustees believe would be most effective and appropriate for the

administration and expenditure of remaining funds and interest

received. Upon the expiration of the authorities granted in this

section all monies in the Fund or outside accounts shall be
