Historical and Revision Notes
Revised Statutes and
Statutes at Large
In subsection (a)(2), the words “without a change of position from the agency by which he is employed to an international organization” are substituted for “without the employee’s transfer from the Federal agency by which he is employed” to eliminate the necessity of carrying into this section the definition of “transfer” appearing in former section 2331(5).
Other definitions appearing in former section 2331 are omitted from this section as inappropriate but are carried into section 3581.
Standard changes are made to conform with the definitions applicable and the style of this title as outlined in the preface to the report.
1969—Subsec. (b). Pub. L. 91–175 substituted “5” for “3” and inserted provision enabling President, regarding an agency employee detailed to an international organization for 5 years, to extend the 5-year period for up to an additional 3 years.
For provisions concerning the providing for details of Federal employees to international organizations and the delegation of Presidential authority, concerning the extension of a detail under this section, to the Secretary of State, see Ex. Ord. No. 11552,
