-STATUTE-

(a) Assignment Authority. - On request from or with the agreement

of a private sector organization, and with the consent of the

employee concerned, the head of an agency may arrange for the

assignment of an employee of the agency to a private sector

organization or an employee of a private sector organization to the

agency. An eligible employee is an individual who -

(1) works in the field of information technology management;

(2) is considered an exceptional performer by the individual's

current employer; and

(3) is expected to assume increased information technology

management responsibilities in the future.

An employee of an agency shall be eligible to participate in this

program only if the employee is employed at the GS-11 level or

above (or equivalent) and is serving under a career or

career-conditional appointment or an appointment of equivalent

tenure in the excepted service, and applicable requirements of

section 209(b) of the E-Government Act of 2002 are met with respect

to the proposed assignment of such employee.

(b) Agreements. - Each agency that exercises its authority under

this chapter shall provide for a written agreement between the

agency and the employee concerned regarding the terms and

conditions of the employee's assignment. In the case of an

employee of the agency, the agreement shall -

(1) require the employee to serve in the civil service, upon

completion of the assignment, for a period equal to the length of

the assignment; and

(2) provide that, in the event the employee fails to carry out

the agreement (except for good and sufficient reason, as

determined by the head of the agency from which assigned) the

employee shall be liable to the United States for payment of all

expenses of the assignment.

An amount under paragraph (2) shall be treated as a debt due the

United States.

(c) Termination. - Assignments may be terminated by the agency or

private sector organization concerned for any reason at any time.

(d) Duration. - Assignments under this chapter shall be for a

period of between 3 months and 1 year, and may be extended in

3-month increments for a total of not more than 1 additional year,

except that no assignment under this chapter may commence after the

end of the 5-year period beginning on the date of the enactment of

this chapter.

(e) Assistance. - The Chief Information Officers Council, by

agreement with the Office of Personnel Management, may assist in

the administration of this chapter, including by maintaining lists

of potential candidates for assignment under this chapter,

establishing mentoring relationships for the benefit of individuals

who are given assignments under this chapter, and publicizing the

program.

(f) Considerations. - In exercising any authority under this

chapter, an agency shall take into consideration -

(1) the need to ensure that small business concerns are

appropriately represented with respect to the assignments

described in sections 3703 and 3704, respectively; and

(2) how assignments described in section 3703 might best be

used to help meet the needs of the agency for the training of

employees in information technology management.
