[For the Administrative Conference of the United States statement of

The Conference develops recommendations for improving the procedures by


which Federal agencies administer regulatory, benefit, and other
Government programs. Conference members are Federal officials, private
lawyers, university professors, and other exper ts in administrative law
and government who meet to consider studies of selected problems involving
administrative procedures and the regulatory process. They combine their
experience and judgment in cooperative efforts toward improving the
fairness and e ffectiveness of agency procedures.

The Administrative Conference of the United States was


established as a permanent independent agency by the Administrative
Conference Act (5 U.S.C. 591-596) enacted in 1964. The statutory
provisions prescribing the organization and activities of the Conference
are based in part upon the experience of two temporary Conferences called
by the President in 1953 and 1961, each of which operated for 18 months.

Membership

By statute the Administrative Conference has no fewer than 75


and no more than 101 members, a majority of whom are Government officials.
The Chairman of the Conference is appointed by the President with the
advice and consent of the Senate for a 5-year term. The Council, which
acts as the executive board, consists of the Chairman and 10 other members
appointed by the President for 3-year terms. Federal officials named to
the Council may constitute no more than one-half of the total Council
membe rship. In addition to the Chairman and the Council, the membership
of the Conference is composed of high-level officials designated from the
principal departments and agencies of the Federal Government and private
lawyers, university faculty members, and others specially informed in law
and government. Members representing the private sector are appointed by
the Chairman, with the approval of the Council, for 2-year terms. The
Chairman is the only full-time compensated member.

The entire membership is divided into committees, each assigned


a broad area of interest such as adjudication, administration,
governmental processes, judicial review, regulation, or rulemaking. The
membership meeting in plenary session is calle d the Assembly of the
Conference, which by statute must meet at least once, and customarily
meets twice, each year.

Activities

Subjects for inquiry are developed by the Chairman and approved


by the Council. The committees, overseen by the Research Director with
assistance from consultants, conduct thorough studies of these subjects,
propose recommendations, and prepare supporting reports. Recommendations
are evaluated by the Council and, if ready for Assembly consideration, are
distributed to the membership with the supporting reports and placed on
the agenda of the next plenary session. The Assembly has complete author
ity to approve, amend, remand, or reject recommendations presented by the
committees. The deliberations of the committees and Assembly are public.

The Chairman is authorized to encourage the departments and


agencies to adopt the recommendations of the Conference and is required to
transmit to the President and to Congress an annual report and interim
reports concerning the activities of th e Conference, including reports on
the implementation of its recommendations.

Recommendations adopted by the Conference may call for new


legislation or for action on the part of affected agencies. A substantial
number of recommendations have been implemented and others are in the
process of being implemented.

The Chairman may make independent inquiries into procedural matters,


including matters proposed by individuals inside or outside the Government. The
purpose of such inquiries is to determine whether the problems should be made the
subject of Con
ference study in the interest of developing fair and effective procedures for such
cases.

Upon the request of the head of a department or agency, the


Chairman is authorized to furnish advice and assistance on matters of
administrative procedure. The Conference may collect information and
statistics from departments and agencies and p ublish such reports as it
considers useful for evaluating and improving administrative processes.
The Conference also serves as a forum for the interchange among
departments and agencies of information that may be useful in improving
administrative practi ces and procedures.

recommendations and reports. It also maintains a library where copies of
all official Conference documents are available for public inspection.

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission promotes healthy economic growth,


protects the rights of customers, and ensures fairness and integrity in
the marketplace through regulation of futures trading. To this end, it
also engages in the analysis of econo mic issues affected by or affecting
futures trading.

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Federal regulatory


agency for futures trading, was established by the Commodity Futures
Trading Commission Act of 1974 (7 U.S.C. 4a). The Commission began
operation in April 1975, and its authority to regulate futures trading
was renewed by Congress in 1978, 1982, 1986, and 1992.

The Commission consists of five Commissioners who are appointed


by the President, with the advice and consent of the Senate. One
Commissioner is designated by the President to serve as Chairman. The
Commissioners serve staggered 5-year terms, an d by law no more than three
Commissioners can belong to the same political party.

The five major operating components that exist within the


Commission are: the divisions of enforcement, economic analysis, trading
and markets, and the offices of the executive director and the general
counsel.

Activities

The Commission regulates trading on the 11 U.S. futures


exchanges, which offer active futures and options contracts. It also
regulates the activities of numerous commodity exchange members, public
brokerage houses (futures commission merchants), Commission-registered
futures industry salespeople and associated persons, commodity trading
advisers, and commodity pool operators. Some off-exchange transactions
involving instruments similar in nature to futures contracts also fall
under Commission ju risdiction.

The Commission's regulatory and enforcement efforts are designed


to ensure that the futures trading process is fair and that it protects
both the rights of customers and the financial integrity of the
marketplace. It approves the rules under which an exchange proposes to
operate and monitors exchange enforcement of those rules. It reviews the
terms of proposed futures contracts, and registers companies and
individuals who handle customer funds or give trading advice. The
Commission also protects the public by enforcing rules that require that
customer funds be kept in bank accounts separate from accounts maintained
by firms for their own use, and that such customer accounts be marked to
present market value at the close of trading each day.

Futures contracts for agricultural commodities were traded in


the United States for more than 100 years before futures trading was
diversified to include trading in contracts for precious metals, raw
materials, foreign currencies, financial inst ruments, commercial interest
rates, and U.S. Government and mortgage securities. Contract
diversification has grown in exchange trading, in both traditional and
newer commodities.

Large regional offices are maintained in Chicago, IL, and New


York, NY, where many of the Nation's futures exchanges are located.
Smaller regional offices are located in Kansas City, MO, and Los Angeles,
CA. A suboffice of the Kansas City region al office is located in
Minneapolis, MN.

activities by State and local governments, private and public groups,
individuals, and education al institutions. It also reinforces efforts
among other Federal agencies with respect to the impact of their
operations on the environment, and it is specifically charged with
publishing its determinations when those hold that a proposal is
unsatisfactory from the standpoint of public health or welfare or
environmental quality. In all, the Environmental Protection Agency is
designed to serve as the public's advocate for a livable environment.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission eliminates discrimination


based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or age
in hiring, promoting, firing, setting wages, testing, training,
apprenticeship, and all other terms and conditio ns of employment. The
Commission conducts investigations of alleged discrimination; makes
determinations based on gathered evidence; attempts conciliation when
discrimination has taken place; files lawsuits; and conducts voluntary
assistance programs for employers, unions, and community organizations.
The Commission also has oversight responsibility for all compliance and
enforcement activities relating to equal employment opportunity among
Federal employees and applicants, including discrimination against
individuals with disabilities.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) was created


by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. 2000e-4), and
became operational July 2, 1965. Title VII was amended by the Equal
Employment Opportunity Act of 1972, the Preg nancy Discrimination Act of
1978, and the Civil Rights Act of 1991.

Executive Order 12067 of June 30, 1978, abolished the Equal


Employment Opportunity Coordinating Council and transferred its duties to
the Commission with responsibility for providing coherence and direction
to the Government's equal employment o pportunity efforts. This Executive
order requires that strong uniform enforcement standards be applied
throughout the Government, and it encourages the development of
standardized data collection procedures and joint training programs, the
sharing of enfo rcement-related data among agencies, and the development
of uniform methods and priorities for complaint and compliance reviews.

Reorganization Plan No. 1 of 1978 (5 U.S.C. app.) effective


January 1, 1979, transferred Federal equal employment functions from the
Civil Service Commission to the EEOC. Authorities for transferred
functions include:

-- section 717 of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42
U.S.C. 2000e-16), which prohibits discrimination in employment in the
Federal Government on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national
origin;

-- Executive Order 11478 of August 8, 1969, which sets forth


the U.S. policy of providing for equal employment opportunity in the
Federal Government through affirmative action programs in Federal
departments and agencies;

-- the Equal Pay Act of 1963 (29 U.S.C. 206) in the Federal
sector;

-- section 15 of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of


1967, as amended (29 U.S.C. 621) in the Federal sector; and

-- section 501 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C.


791), which pertains to employment discrimination against individuals with
disabilities in the Federal Government.

On July 1, 1979, responsibility for enforcement -- in private


industry as well as in State and local governments -- of the Equal Pay Act
of 1963 and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 was
transferred from the Department of Labor to the Commission. The former act
prohibits sex-based pay differences where substantially equal work
performed in the same establishment under similar working conditions
requires equal skill, effort, and responsibility; and the latter prohibits
employment d iscrimination against workers or applicants 40 years of age
or older. In addition to employers, the age discrimination act covers
activities of employment agencies, and both acts cover activities of labor
organizations.

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) (42 U.S.C.


12101 et seq.) was approved on July 26, 1990. Title I of the act has been
enforced by EEOC since July 26, 1992, for employers with 25 or more
employees; and will become effective on Ju ly 26, 1994, for employers with
15 or more employees. Title I governs private employers, State and local
governments, employment agencies, labor organizations, and joint
labor-management committees. The act prohibits employment discrimination
against qual ified individuals with disabilities and requires that
employers make reasonable accommodations for such qualified individuals if
it would not create undue hardship.

The Civil Rights Act of 1991 reversed parts of several U.S.


Supreme Court rulings and provided for compensatory and punitive damages
for intentional discrimination under Title VII of that act and the ADA.

The Commission operates through 50 field offices, each of which


processes charges.

Activities

Enforcement

The Commission's field offices receive charges of job discrimination under


Title VII, the ADA, the Equal Pay Act of 1963, and the Age Discrimination
in Employment Act of 1967. Field offices may initiate investigations to
find violations of the acts. Members of the Commission also may initiate
charges alleging that a violation of Title VII or the ADA has occurred.
Section 501 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 covers Federal employees and
applicants only.

Charges Under Title VII

Title VII prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color,


religion, sex, or national origin by private employers, State and local
governments, and educational institutions with 15 or more employees, or by
the Federal Gove rnment, private and public employment agencies, labor
organizations, and joint labor-management committees for apprenticeship
and training.

Charges of Title VII violations outside of the Federal sector


must be filed with the Commission within 180 days of the alleged violation
(or up to 300 days in a State or locality in which a fair employment
practices agency is located), and the C ommission is responsible for
notifying persons so charged within 10 days of the receipt of a new
charge. Before investigation, charges must be deferred for 60 days to a
State or local fair employment practices agency in States and
municipalities where the re is a fair employment practices law covering
the alleged discrimination. The deferral period is 120 days if the agency
has been operating less than 1 year. Under worksharing agreements executed
between the Commission and State and local fair employment practices
agencies, the Commission routinely will assume jurisdiction over certain
charges of discrimination and proceed with its investigation rather than
wait for the expiration of the deferral period.

If there is reasonable cause to believe the charge is true, the


district, area, or local office attempts to remedy the alleged unlawful
practices through informal methods of conciliation, conference, and
persuasion. If an acceptable conciliation agreement is not secured, the
case is submitted to the Commission for possible litigation. If litigation
is approved, the Commission will bring suit in an appropriate Federal
district court.
Under Title VII, the Attorney General brings suit when a State
or local government, or political subdivision is involved. If the
Commission or the Attorney General does not approve litigation or if a
finding of no reasonable cause is made, at th e conclusion of the
administrative procedures (or earlier at the request of the charging
party) a Notice of Right-to-Sue is issued that allows the charging party
to proceed within 90 days in a Federal district court. In appropriate
cases, the Commission m ay intervene in such civil action if the case is
of general public interest. The investigation and conciliation of charges
having an industrywide or national impact are coordinated or conducted by
Systemic Investigations and Individual Compliance Programs , Office of
Program Operations.

Under the provisions of Title VII, section 706(f)(2), as amended


by section 4 of the Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972 (42 U.S.C.
2000e-5), if it is concluded after a preliminary investigation that prompt
judicial action is necessary to c arry out the purposes of the act, the
Commission or the Attorney General, in a case involving a State or local
government, governmental agency or political subdivision, may bring an
action for appropriate temporary or preliminary relief pending final disp
osition of a charge.

Americans with Disabilities Act Charges

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 specifically incorporates the


powers, remedies, and procedures contained in Title VII of the Civil
Rights Act of 1964. Employment discrimination charges based on disabilit y
may be filed at any of the Commission's field offices. The Commission will
investigate and attempt to conciliate the charges using the same
procedures it uses to investigate and conciliate charges filed under Title
VII. The litigation procedures under t his title apply to charges filed
under the act.

Age Discrimination in Employment or Equal Pay Act Charges and Complaints

The age discrimination in employment and equal pay acts cover most
employees and job applicants in private industry and Federal, State, and
local governments.

An age discrimination charge must be filed with the Commission


within 180 days of the alleged violation or, in a case where the alleged
discriminatory action took place in a State which has its own age
discrimination law and authority administer ing that law, within 300 days
of the alleged violation or 30 days after the receipt of a notice of
termination of State proceedings, whichever is earlier. A lawsuit must be
filed within 2 years of the discriminatory act or 3 years in cases of a
willful vi olation of the law. Under the Civil Rights Act of 1991, a
lawsuit must be filed within 90 days of the plaintiff's receipt of notice
of final action. The Commission will attempt to eliminate the unlawful
practice through informal methods of conciliation, c onference, and
persuasion. A lawsuit may be brought by the Commission if conciliation
fails, or individuals may file suit on their own behalf 90 days after
filing a charge with the Commission and the appropriate State agency.
Should the Commission take le gal action, an individual covered by such
action may not file a private suit. If an individual files a complaint of
age discrimination, his or her name will be kept confidential, but the
individual filing the complaint may not bring a private suit unless he or
she elects to file a charge first in accordance with the above
requirements.

A lawsuit under the Equal Pay Act of 1963 may be filed by the
Commission or by the complainant. There are no prerequisites to individual
actions under this law. Wages may be recovered for a period of up to 2
years prior to the filing of a suit, except in the case of willful
violation, where 3 years' backpay may be recovered. The name of the
individual filing the complaint may be kept confidential at the
administrative level.

Complaints Against the Federal Government

On April 10, 1992, the Commission published new Federal sector processing
regulations codified at 29 CFR 1614, effective October 1, 1992. Federal
employees or job applicants who want to file complaints of job disc
rimination based on race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, or
physical or mental disability must first consult an equal employment
opportunity counselor within their agency within 45 calendar days of the
alleged discriminatory event or the effe ctive date of the alleged
discriminatory personnel action. If the complaint cannot be resolved
informally, the person may file a formal complaint within 15 calendar days
after the date of receipt of the notice of the right to file a complaint.

An accepted complaint is investigated by the agency and there is


a right to a hearing before an EEOC administrative judge before the agency
issues its final decision. An individual who wishes to file a complaint
under the Equal Pay Act of 1963 m ust now follow these procedures. An
individual may also elect to file suit under the Equal Pay Act of 1963
without prior resort to the agency or to the Commission.

A complaint under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of


1967 against a Federal agency or department must be filed with the head of
the agency, director of equal employment opportunity, head of a field
installation, or such other officials as the agency may designate.
Federal-sector age discrimination complainants may bypass the
administrative complaint process and file a civil action directly in a
U.S. district court by first notifying the Commission within 180 calendar
days of the alleged discriminatory act and thereafter waiting 30 calendar
days before filing suit.

Federal employees may file appeals of final agency decisions or


decisions of an arbitrator or the Federal Labor Relations Authority with
the Commission's Office of Federal Operations at any time up to 30
calendar days after receipt of the agency notice of final decision. A
petition for review of a Merit Systems Protection Board decision may be
filed within 30 days of the date that the Board decision becomes final. A
request for reopening and reconsideration of any decision of the
Commission shou ld be made in writing within 30 days of receipt of such
decision. Office of Federal Operations decisions are issued in writing to
the complainant, complainant's representative, and the agency. The Office
monitors and ensures compliance by Federal agencies with Commission orders
and appellate decisions, and provides technical assistance and training to
other Federal agencies.

Other Activities The Commission actively promotes voluntary compliance


with equal employment opportunity statutes through a variety of
educational and technical assistance activities. A distinct activity of
the Commission is the Voluntary Assistance Progr am. This outreach program
is designed to provide educational and technical assistance to small and
midsize employers and unions -- through 1-day seminars on equal employment
opportunity laws -- about their rights and obligations under all the
statutes tha t the Commission enforces.

Another activity initiated by the Commission is the Expanded


Presence Program, which is designed to make the Commission accessible in
areas identified as underserved by Commission offices. The district
offices send contact teams to these sites o n a rotating basis to provide
information to the public regarding their rights and responsibilities
under the laws enforced by the Commission.

The Commission also provides assistance and guidance to Federal


agencies in processing complaints and in resolving disputes. In addition
to conducting on-site consultations, EEOC co-hosts an annual Federal
Dispute Resolution Conference which pro vides a forum for Federal agencies
to meet and exchange ideas on resolving disputes.

Through its Educational Technical Assistance and Training


Revolving Fund, the Commission is also able to provide its constituency
with advanced and specialized technical assistance. Fees charged for
Revolving Fund products are not to exceed the cost of producing the
materials of services provided; however, they are to bear a direct
relationship to the cost of providing such outreach and are to be imposed
on a uniform basis.

The Commission participates in the development of the employment


discrimination law through the issuance of guidelines, publication of
significant Commission decisions, and involvement in litigation brought
under Title VII, the Equal Pay Act of 1963, the Age Discrimination in
Employment Act of 1967, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

The Commission has direct liaison with Federal, State, and local
governments; employers and union organizations; trade associations; civil
rights organizations; and other agencies and organizations concerned with
employment of minority group mem bers and women. The Commission engages in
and contributes to the cost of research and other mutual interest projects
with State and local agencies charged with the administration of fair
employment practices laws. Furthermore, the Commission enters into c
ontracts and worksharing agreements with State and local agencies in order
to avoid duplication of effort by identifying specific charges to be
investigated by the respective agencies.

The Commission is also a major publisher of data on the


employment status of minorities and women. Through six employment surveys
(EEO-1 through EEO-6) covering private employers, apprenticeship programs,
labor unions, State and local government s, elementary and secondary
schools, and colleges and universities, the Commission tabulates and
stores data on the ethnic, racial, and sex composition of employees at all
job levels within the reported groups.

Research information thus collected is shared with selected


Federal agencies, such as the Department of Health and Human Services, the
Department of Labor, and others. It is also made available, in appropriate
form, for public use.

[For the Export-Import Bank of the United States statement of


organization, see the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 12, Part 401]

The Export-Import Bank of the United States facilitates and aids in


financing exports of U.S. goods and services. The Bank has implemented a
variety of programs to meet the needs of the U.S. exporting community.
These programs take the form of direct lend ing or the issuance of
guarantees and insurance so that exporters and private banks can extend
appropriate financing without taking undue risks.

The Export-Import Bank of Washington was authorized in 1934 as a


banking corporation organized under the laws of the District of Columbia
by Executive Order 6581 of February 2, 1934. The Bank was continued as an
agency of the United States by ac ts of Congress in 1935, 1937, 1939, and
1940. It was made an independent agency of the U.S. Government by the
Export-Import Bank Act of 1945 (12 U.S.C. 635), subsequently amended in
1947 to reincorporate the Bank under Federal charter. The name was change
d to Export-Import Bank of the United States (Eximbank) by the act of
March 13, 1968 (12 U.S.C. 635 note).

The principal legislation governing the Bank's operations is the


Export-Import Bank Act of 1945, as amended.

The mission of the Bank is to help American exporters meet


government-supported competition from other countries and to correct
market imperfections so that commercial export financing can take place.

The Export-Import Bank will consider aiding in the export


financing of U.S. goods and services when there is a reasonable assurance
of repayment. Eximbank is not to compete with private financing, but
supplement it when adequate funds are not av ailable in the private
sector.

Activities

The Bank is authorized to have outstanding at any one time


dollar loans, guarantees, and insurance in aggregate amount not in excess
of $75 billion. The Bank also is authorized to have a capital stock of $1
billion and to borrow from the United States Treasury up to $6 billion
outstanding at any one time. Subsidy costs of the Bank's programs are
appropriated on an annual basis.

Eximbank operates a loan program and a guarantee program for


both medium- and long-term export transactions. Both programs, providing
up to 85-percent financing, operate on the basis of preliminary and final
commitments and are open to any respo nsible party. Eximbank loans also
carry the minimum interest rate allowed by the Organization for Economic
Cooperation and Development. All fee schedules are based on risk.

Eximbank acts to reduce the risks of buyer default for American


exporters under a variety of insurance programs. Eximbank's policies
insure against risks of default in export transactions and are available
in a variety of insurance plans that ar e tailored to the special needs of
different types of exporters and financial institutions.

The Bank's other programs are designed primarily to benefit


small business exporters, including the Working Capital Guarantee Program,
a loan guarantee program designed to provide eligible exporters with
access to working capital loans from comm ercial lenders. There is also an
Engineering Multiplier Program, which provides financing in support of
project-related design services or feasibility studies with potential for
generating further procurement of American exports.

@U1

[Insert Farm Credit Administration chart]@U0

The Farm Credit Administration is responsible for ensuring the safe and
sound operation of the banks, associations, affiliated service
organizations, and other entities that collectively comprise what is known
as the Farm Credit System, and for protecting the interests of the public
and those who borrow from Farm Credit institutions or invest in Farm
Credit securities.

The Farm Credit Administration was established as an independent


financial regulatory agency in the executive branch of the Federal
Government by the Farm Credit Act of 1971 (12 U.S.C. 2241 et seq.). The
Administration carries out its responsibi lities by conducting
examinations of the various Farm Credit lending institutions, which are
Farm Credit Banks, Banks for Cooperatives, the National Bank for
Cooperatives, Federal Land Bank Associations, Production Credit
Associations, Agricultural Credit Associations, and Federal Land Credit
Associations. It also examines the service organizations owned by the Farm
Credit lending institutions, as well as the National Consumer Cooperative
Bank (also known as the National Cooperative Bank (NCB)) and its su
bsidiaries, including the NCB Development Corporation.

Management of the agency is vested in the Farm Credit


Administration Board, whose three full-time members are appointed to
6-year terms by the President, with the advice and consent of the Senate.
One member of the Board is designated by the Pre sident as Chairman and
serves as the Administration's chief executive officer. The Board is
responsible for approving rules and regulations, providing for the
examination and regulation of and reporting by Farm Credit institutions,
and establishing the po licies under which the Administration operates.
Board meetings are regularly held on the second Thursday of the month and
are subject to the Government in the Sunshine Act. Public announcements of
these meetings are published in the Federal Register.

The lending institutions of the Farm Credit System were


established to provide adequate and dependable credit and closely related
services to farmers, ranchers, and producers or harvesters of aquatic
products; persons engaged in providing on-the -farm services; rural
homeowners; and associations of farmers, ranchers, and producers or
harvesters of aquatic products, or federations of such associations that
operate on a cooperative basis and are engaged in marketing, processing,
supply, or business service functions for the benefit of their members.
Initially capitalized by the United States Government, the Farm Credit
lending institutions are organized as cooperatives and are completely
owned by their borrowers. The loan funds provided to borrower s by these
institutions are obtained primarily through the sale of securities to
investors in the Nation's capital markets.

The Agricultural Credit Act of 1987, as amended (12 U.S.C.


2279aa-1), established the Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation
(commonly known as ``Farmer Mac''). The Corporation, designated as part of
the Farm Credit System, is a federally ch artered instrumentality of the
United States and promotes the development of a secondary market for
agricultural real estate and rural housing loans. Farmer Mac also provides
guarantees for the timely payment of principal and interest on securities,
repre senting interests in or obligations backed by pools of agricultural
real estate loans. The Administration is responsible for the examination
and regulation of Farmer Mac to ensure the safety and soundness of its
operations.

The Administration administers regulations under which Farm


Credit institutions operate. These regulations implement the Farm Credit
Act of 1971, as amended, and have the force and effect of law. Similar to
other Federal regulators of financial institutions, the Administration's
authorities include the power to issue cease-and-desist orders, to levy
civil monetary penalties, to remove officers and directors of Farm Credit
institutions, and to establish financial and operating reporting requireme
nts. Although it is prohibited from participation in routine management or
operations of Farm Credit institutions, the Administration is authorized
to become involved in these institutions' management and operations when
the Farm Credit Act or its regulat ions have been violated, when taking an
action to correct an unsafe or unsound practice, or when assuming a formal
conservatorship over an institution.

The Administration does not operate on funds appropriated by


Congress. Its income is derived from assessments collected from the
institutions it regulates and examines. In addition to the headquarters
office located in McLean, VA, the Administra tion maintains 8 field
offices. They are located in Albany, NY; Aurora, CO; Bloomington, MN;
Irving, TX; Marietta, GA; Oklahoma City, OK; Sacramento, CA; and St.
Louis, MO.

Authority for the organization and activities of the


institutions comprising the cooperative Farm Credit System and that
operate under the regulation of the Farm Credit Administration may be
found in the Farm Credit Act of 1971, as amended (12 U .S.C. 2001).

and foreign communications by wire and radio in the public interest. It
was assigned additional regulatory jurisdi ction under the provisions of
the Communications Satellite Act of 1962 (47 U.S.C. 701-744). The scope of
its regulation includes radio and television broadcasting; telephone,
telegraph, and cable television operation; two-way radio and radio
operators; an d satellite communication.

The Commission is composed of five members, who are appointed by


the President with the advice and consent of the Senate. One of the
members is designated by the President as Chairman.

In administering the programs necessary to carry out its


regulatory responsibility, the Commission is assisted by a General Counsel
who, in addition to regular duties, represents the Commission before the
United States Courts of Appeals; a Manag ing Director; a Director of
Public Affairs; a Director of Legislative Affairs; a Director of
International Communications, who ensures that the coordination and
integration of the Commission's international policy activities are

Private Radio Communications

The Private Radio Bureau regulates the use of the radio spectrum to
fulfill the communications needs of businesses, State and local
governments, aircraft, ships, and individuals. Over 3 million licensees
use radio to promote s afety of life and property, to increase
productivity, and to advance the science of telecommunications. The
Private Radio Bureau regulates and licenses two broad groups of radio
services: the land mobile and microwave radio services, and the special
radio services. Land mobile and microwave radio services are used by
public safety entities (police, fire, local government), industrial
entities (businesses of all types, including public utilities), and land
transportation entities (buses, railroads, taxicab s). Special radio
services include the aviation service, the marine service, the Alaska
fixed service, the amateur services, and the personal radio services
(citizens' band, radio control, interactive video and data service, and
general mobile). While tw o personal radio services, citizens (CB) and

Engineering and Technology

The Office of Engineering and Technology administers the Table of


Frequency Allocations which specifies the frequency ranges that can be
utilized by various radio services. The Office also administers the
Experimental Radio Serv ice and the Equipment Authorization Program. The
Experimental Radio Service permits the public to experiment with new uses
of radio frequencies. This allows development of radio equipment and
exploration of new radio techniques prior to licensing under ot her
regulatory programs. The Equipment Authorization Program includes several
specific procedures by which the agency approves radio equipment as a
prerequisite to importation, marketing, or use. The procedures range from
Commission testing of an equipmen t sample for compliance with applicable
standards, through FCC review of applications and accompanying test
reports submitted by the applicants, to a self-authorization procedure
whereby a manufacturer certifies that the product complies with the
standard s.

For further information, contact the Office of Engineering and Technology.


Phone, 202-653-8103.

Compliance

Much of the investigative and enforcement work of the Commission is


carried out by its field staff. The Field Operations Bureau has 6 regional
offices and 35 field offices. It also operates a nationwide fleet of
mobile radio direction-finding v ehicles for technical enforcement
purposes. The field staff, in effect, are the Commission's ``eyes and
ears'' in detecting radio violations and enforcing rules and regulations.
Continuous surveillance of the radio spectrum is maintained to detect
unlicen sed operation and activities or nonconforming transmissions, and
to furnish radio bearings on ships and planes in distress. The Field
Operations Bureau also administers public service programs aimed at
educating Commission licensees, industry, and the gen eral public to
improve compliance with FCC rules and regulations.
