TITLE 39--POSTAL SERVICE
CHAPTER 4--GENERAL AUTHORITY
Sec. 402. Delegation of authority
Except for those powers, duties, or obligations specifically vested
in the Governors, as distinguished from the Board of Governors, the
Board may delegate the authority vested in it to the Postmaster General
under such terms, conditions, and limitations, including the power of
redelegation, as it deems desirable. The Board may establish such
committees of the Board, and delegate such powers to any committee, as
the Board determines appropriate to carry out its functions and duties.
Delegations to the Postmaster General or committees shall be consistent
with other provisions of this title, shall not relieve the Board of full
responsibility for the carrying out of its duties and functions, and
shall be revocable by the Governors in their exclusive judgment.
