Federal information policies in the 1990s : views and perspectives by Peter Hernon( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book uses a cross-disciplinary approach to profile developments through November 1995 concerning important U.S. government information policy issues. Information policy analyses benefit from a historical perspective while seeking to identify current areas of agreement and disagreement, especially at a time when the United States is moving from traditional paper formats to electronic modes and the adoption of a national information infrastructure. Ideology, politics, and opinion must be tempered by empirical assessment and open public debate. The study of U.S. government information policy can identify options for policymakers and others attempting to better understand and address key issues. The book includes chapters on the following topics: (1) "Government Information Policy in a Time of Uncertainty and Change"; (2) "The Clinton Administration and the National Information Infrastructure (nii)"; (3) "Congress and Information Issues"; (4) "Access to the Judicial Branch"; (5) "An Executive Branch Perspective on Managing Information Resources"; (6) "Federal Information Resources Management: Integrating Information Management and Technology"; (7) "Privacy"; (8) "National Security Information Policy after the End of the Cold War"; (9) "Freedom of Information Revisited"; (10) "U.S. Scientific and Technical Information Policy"; (11) "Geographic Information Systems"; (12) "The Depository Library Program: Another Component of the Access Puzzle Shifting to Electronic Formats"; (13) "Managing Archival Records in the Electronic Age: Fundamental Challenges"; and (14) "Moving to the Networked Information Environment: New Challenges and Issues." Also contains biographical information about the contributors and author and subject indices. (Author/SWC)

Executive branch reorganization and management initiatives by Harold Relyea( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides a brief overview of recent executive branch reorganization actions and related management initiatives. It reviews the relevant plans and preparations of President-elect Barack Obama as the new Administration transitions to assuming management efforts of the executive branch. Briefly examined, as well, are the organization and management efforts of the most recent regimes. President George W. Bush came to office from a campaign which had emphasized efficiency in government, particularly through the use of information technology, but revealed no plans for executive branch reorganization. The Clinton Administration had conducted an active effort at "reinventing government," spearheaded by a National Performance Review (NPR) announced shortly after the 1993 inauguration. The NPR produced a series of reports proposing various organizational and operational reforms
National emergency powers by Harold Relyea( Book )

22 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The President of the United States has available certain powers that may be exercised in the event that the nation is threatened by crisis, exigency, or emergency circumstances (other than natural disasters, war, or near-war situations). Such powers may be stated explicitly or implied by the Constitution, assumed by the Chief Executive to be permissible constitutionally, or inferred from or specified by statute. Through legislation, Congress has made a great many delegations of authority in this regard over the past 200 years. There are, however, limits and restraints upon the President in his exercise of emergency powers. With the exception of the habeas corpus clause, the Constitution makes no allowance for the suspension of any of its provisions during a national emergency. Disputes over the constitutionality or legality of the exercise of emergency powers are judicially reviewable. Indeed, both the judiciary and Congress, as co-equal branches, can restrain the executive regarding emergency powers. So can public opinion. Furthermore, since 1976, the President has been subject to certain procedural formalities in utilizing some statutorily delegated emergency authority. The National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601-1651) eliminated or modified some statutory grants of emergency authority; required the President to declare formally the existence of a national emergency and to specify what statutory authority, activated by the declaration, would be used; and provided Congress a means to countermand the President's declaration and the activated authority being sought. The development of this regulatory statute and subsequent declarations of national emergency are reviewed in this report, which is updated as events require

Access to government information in the United States by Harold Relyea( Book )

8 editions published between 1991 and 2007 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Constitution of the United States makes no specific allowance for any one of the co-equal branches to have access to information held by the others and contains no provision expressly establishing a procedure for, or a right of, public access to government information. Nonetheless, Congress has legislated various public access laws. These include two records access statutes -- the Freedom on Information Act (FOI Act or FOIA; 5 u.S.C. ss552) and the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. ss552a) -- and two meetings access statutes -- the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA; 5 U.S.C. App.) and the Government in the Sunshine Act (5 U.S.C. ss552b). Moreover, due to the American separation of powers model of government, interbranch conflicts over the accessibility of information are neither unexpected nor necessarily destructive. The federal courts, historically, have been reluctant to review and resolve "political questions" involving information disputes between Congress and the executive branch. Although there is considerable interbranch cooperation, such conflicts probably will continue to occur on occasion
Security classified and controlled information by Harold Relyea( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the current environment, still affected by the long shadow of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, several issues have arisen regarding security classified and controlled information. Volume is a concern: 8 million new classification actions in 2001 jumped to 14 million new actions in 2005, while the quantity of declassified pages dropped from 100 million in 2001 to 29 million in 2005. Expense is vexing: $4.5 billion spent on classification in 2001 increased to $7.1 billion in 2004, while declassification costs fell from $232 million in 2001 to $48.3 million in 2004, according to annual reports by the Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO) of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). Some agencies were recently discovered to be withdrawing archived records from public access and reclassifying them. Critically evaluating this activity, ISOO has indicated that the federal government needs to apply a more integrated approach among the classifying agencies. The force of, and authority for, information control markings, other than security classification labels, have come under congressional scrutiny, prompting concerns about their number, variety, lack of underlying managerial regimes, and effects. Among those effects, contend the Government Accountability Office and the manager of the Information Sharing Environment for the intelligence community, is the obstruction of information sharing across the federal government and with state and local governments. These and related matters, including remedial legislation (H.R. 984, H.R. 4806), are examined in this report, which will be updated as events warrant
The executive office of the president : an historical overview by Harold Relyea( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Established in 1939, the Executive Office of the President (EOP) consists of a group of federal agencies immediately serving the President. Among the oldest of these are the White House Office, where many of the President's personal assistants are located, and the Office of Management and Budget, which was established as the Bureau of the Budget in 1921 and by transfer became one of the original EOP units in 1939. Entities have been placed within the EOP by both presidential action and congressional determination. Some components have endured; others have been brief experiments. Some have been transferred to other quarters of the executive branch; others have been abolished with no successor. In large measure, the tenure and durability of an Executive Office agency is dependent upon its usefulness to the President -- as a managerial or coordinative auxiliary, a national symbol, or a haven of political patronage, among other considerations. This report reviews the particular circumstances of the creation of, and underlying authority for, the Executive Office of the President, and provides profiles of the entities that have been, and still are, located within that enclave
