|Pat Kennedy on Reorganization
he long-discussed plan to reorganize the United States' foreign affairs agencies is under way. The first step of the plan, the merger of the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency into the State Department, will be completed by April 1. The U.S. Information Agency will join the Department by Oct. 1.
Except for an occasional newspaper headline, the American public will barely notice a change.
But Assistant Secretary for Administration Pat Kennedy recognizes that within State and the affected agencies, the result will be dramatic and far-reaching. Every bureau, every office and every employee, stateside and overseas, will in some way feel the ripple effects of the reorganization.
