Title 5 of the United States Code is a positive law title of the United States Code with the heading "Government Organization And Employees."
Title 5 contains the Freedom of Information Act, Privacy Act of 1974, the Congressional Review Act as well as authorization for government reorganizations such as Reorganization Plan No. 3. It also is the Title that specifies Federal holidays (5 U.S.C. § 6103).
- Part I: The Agencies Generally
- Part II: Civil Service Functions and Responsibilities
- Part III: Employees
In addition, there is an appendix to Title 5 but it is not itself considered positive law. It contains reorganization plans.
On September 6, 1966, Title 5 was enacted as positive law by Pub. L. 89–554 (80 Stat. 378). Prior to the 1966 positive law recodification, Title 5 had the heading, "Executive Departments and Government Officers and Employees."
In 2022, Congress moved the Federal Advisory Committee Act, Inspector General Act of 1978, and the Ethics in Government Act from the Title 5 Appendix to Title 5 itself.
