Section 321 requires OMB to: (i) Create a single definition for the term ``inherently governmental function'' that addresses any deficiencies in the existing definitions and reasonably applies to all agencies; (ii) establish criteria to be used by agencies to identify ``critical'' functions and positions that should only be performed by Federal employees; and (iii) provide guidance to improve internal agency management of functions that are inherently governmental or critical. The Presidential Memorandum is available at http://www.whitehouse.gov/thepress office/Memorandum-for-the-Heads-of-Executive-Departments-and- Agencies- Subject-Government/.

Document Number: 2010-9783
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-05-10

Document Number: E8-9376
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-05-01
