4 O CT 1958 Mr. Roger W. Jones Acting Director Bureau of the Budget Washington 25, D. C. Approved For Release 2000/69/08 : CIA-RDP78-06365AO01200030045-1 Dear Mr. Jones: Copy This is in response to your letter of 17 September 1958 concerning the proposed Presidential directive designating the Agency, its officers and employees as excepted from certain provisions of the Government Employees Training Act, Public Law 85-507. We have carefully reviewed the modifications which you have suggested to our original proposal. We feel that the original language left less room for misunderstanding and future interpretations. Two instances are noted below. We ask your reconsideration of these two points but with your letter of 17 September and this letter as further statements of understanding, we are willing to accept your modifications. Since this Agency already has in effect a training program which is in substantial conformity with the provisions of the Government Employees Training Act, we shall be continuing that program under this Act rather than establishina program, as a strict reading of section 7 would require. Therefore, we consider that, as provided in section 21(a) , the effective date for the repeal of section 4 of the Central Intelligence Agency Act of 1949 (63 Stat. 208; U. S. C. 403d) will be 270 days following the date of enactment of the Government Employees Training Act. Similarly, since this Agency is continuing its existing training program rather than establist__.dn;La new program, we assume that, with respect to section 23 (a) , our relationships with the Bureau of the Budget concerning our training program will continue on the same basis as in the past. Approved For Release 2000/09/08 : CIA-RDP78-06365AO01200030015-1 Approved For Release 2000/09/08 : CIA-RDP78-06365A00120003O"15-1 Copy As requested, there are enclosed a statement in explanation of the proposed directive and a draft of the directive as modified. If you accept our views on section 7 and section 23 (a), the changes involved can be agreed on by phone. Sincerely, SIGNED Allen W. Dulles Director CONCURRENCES: /s/ L. K.
