Review of Agency Schedule C Appointments by the Executive Office of the President

Headnotes: 

The Executive Office of the President may involve itself in reviewing an agency’s proposed Schedule C appointments, notwithstanding the President’s general delegation of his authority m this area to the Office of Personnel Management, by virtue of the President s continuing responsibility for supervising the performance of Executive Branch officials.

The Executive Office’s power to review Schedule C appointments may be limited in the case of the independent agencies, or when the organic act of an agency specifically precludes review by the Executive Office.
