DEAR SIRS :

In accordance with Public Law 108, approved July 10, 1953, the Commission on Organization of the Executive Branch of the Government, through the assistance of various task forces, has studied the operation, organization, and policies of the Government in certain broad areas of governmental functions. It submits herewith to the Congress a report of the Task Force on Overseas Economic Operations prepared for the Commission's consideration.

The conclusions and recommendations of the task force were reviewed by the Commission in reaching its own conclusions, but the Commission's own recommendations may not necessarily coincide in all respects with those of the task force.

The Commission's report on this subject already has been submitted to the Congress.

The Commission takes this opportunity of expressing its appreciation for the services of the task force chairman, Mr. Henning W. Prentis, Jr.; to the task force members; and to their staff for the painstaking investigation made and for the preparation of this report.

Respectfully,

teskeent Noong

Chairman.

The Honorable

The President of the Senate T'he Honorable

The Speaker of the House of Representatives

LETTER OF SUBMISSION

WASHINGTON, D. C., March 28, 1955. Hon. HERBERT HOOVER, Chairman, Commission on Organization of the Executive Branch of the Government,

Washington 25, D. C. DEAR MR. HOOVER: I have the honor of submitting to you herewith the Report of the Task Force on Overseas Economic Operations, in which its members unanimously concur. The studies made by the task force and its capable staff have covered many phases of the broad and complex questions involved which, in the interest of brevity, are not included.

The report has purposely been confined to three salient points: First, the manner in which foreign aid activities should be administered after the Foreign Operations Administration goes out of existence on June 30, 1955; second, the extent to which foreign aid should be continued; and third, the basic principles which should govern the making of any future grants.

The task force wishes to express its thanks to the staff of the Commission and to the many officials of the executive departments of the Government with whom it has conferred for the courteous assistance that has been rendered it on every hand.

Respectfully submitted.

HENNING W. PRENTIS, JR., Chairman.
