                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, including section 301 of title 3, United 
                States Code, and sections 1105, 1108, and 1111 of title 
                31, United States Code, it is hereby ordered as 
                follows:

                Section 1. Statement of Presidential Principles.

                Government corporations subject to this order should 
                not pay bonuses in excess of those authorized by 
                sections 4501 through 4507 of title 5, United States 
                Code, except as otherwise specifically provided by law.

                Sec. 2. Administration Review. (a) Before taking action 
                to approve any bonus in excess of those authorized in 
                section 4502 of title 5, United States Code, each 
                corporation subject to this section (as provided in 
                section 6 of this order) shall submit information to 
                the Director of the Office of Management and Budget 
                (OMB) relating to such bonuses as provided in 
                subsection (b). Such corporation shall refrain from 
                approving any such bonus until the Director of OMB has 
                had an opportunity to review the information provided 
                by the corporation.

                    (b) The Director of OMB shall issue instructions to 
                the corporations subject to this section specifying

                such corporations as provided in subsection (c).

                    (b) Information submitted shall include the 
                following with respect to senior executives of each 
                corporation subject to this section:

                      (3) standards of Federal management and 
                efficiency; and
                      (4) equivalent private sector compensation 
                practices.

                Sec. 5. Public Dissemination Requirement. Government

                internal management of the executive branch and is not 
                intended to create any right or benefit, substantive or

                United States, its agencies, its officers, or any other 
                person.

                    (Presidential Sig.)
